As soon as I saw the press release for the new A-England Gothic Beauties collection, I know Jane Eyre had to be mine. I love A-England polishes so I ordered it through Llarowe as soon as it was available, and the rest is history. Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë, is one of my favorite stories. I’m a bit weird about it. I’m not a huge fan of the book itself, but I love the movie. That could have something to do with Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester. He’s perfect, isn’t he? But I digress. Jane Eyre was the one polish in this collection where I went “OH OH!!!”
Jane Eyre is described as an “intensely smouldering crimson embers, imprisoned in a veil of sombre black.” That, my friends, is a description! The formula is amazing, a one coater if you do a thick coat, but this is two thin coats. The shimmer is outstanding and I couldn’t stop staring at my nails. This polish was one where I made an effort to get a photo in the sunlight, which meant I had to stop on a street corner on my way home from work. I definitely got some looks. But it’s so worth it! I wore this for FIVE DAYS and experienced very little tip wear. I see this color getting A LOT of wear this winter. I bet it makes an amazing pedicure.
As this post goes live, I’m on my way to Antigua for 9 days!! I have several posts scheduled while I’m gone, and Jess is stepping up and doing a few extra posts. I’m going for the USA World Cup Qualifier so naturally there will be special manicure happening, including one very special one! I can’t wait to share them!
