a-england Jane Eyre

I snatched Jane Eyre up during a fabulous promo a-england ran on their website before Christmas. I'm glad I got in when I did as they have temporarily suspended shipping outside of the UK due to Royal Mail being very stringent about shipping polishes.

Jane Eyre is from Adina's Gothic Beauties collection - inspired by classic characters.  It is a blackened polish with fine red shimmer. It is described on the website as "intensely smouldering crimson embers, imprisoned in a veil of sombre black." This description is poetically accurate. 

These photos are two coats without top coat. I am always impressed by the shine of a-england polishes. This one was practically a one-coater. It is a beautiful shade, but I wish the red was a little more pronounced.

Some polishes have what is known as "hidden shimmer" i.e. obvious shimmer in the bottle that disappears on the nail. That isn't the case with this polish. What you see is what you get, and it's lovely.


  1. Too funny! I'm reading Jane Eyre right now!

    1. It's a wonderfully depressing love story! One of my favorites. :) Another funny thing is that this published this morning, even though it was scheduled for Wednesday.

    2. Ooooh, spooky - just like Jane's ghosts!
