Amazing A-England Promo

*Image courtesy of A-England

I just heard about a great promo for A-England nail varnish via my lovely fellow blogger and nail polish fanatic at The Silver Nail.  In fact I just took advantage of the promo myself and placed an order for Lady of the Lake, Camelot (both of which were only £5.00 thanks to the promo) and also added Dragon and Saint George (which were the full price £9.00) which I’ve been coveting for ages as a little birthday treat for myself.  Keep in mind that it is The Mythicals collection as well as A-Englands The Knight (basecoat) and The Shield (topcoat) which are available through the promo for £5.00.  The Legend collection is still available but for the full retail price of £9.00.  Another bonus is the free shipping!  So be sure to take advantage as soon as possible because the promo only runs from July 18th to July 22nd.  I for one cannot wait until these arrive as these will be my very first A-England products and I have heard that these cruelty and 3-free products are nothing short of amazing.  As always, thanks for reading and check back soon.

Nail Files: Bare All Tag

I was going to save this for tomorrow but I wanted to get it out there sooner rather than later.  Anyhow, I am sure that many of you have come across these “tags” that seem ever so prevalent on various social networking sites, blogs and YouTube channels all across the web.  Well I got to thinking and I thought it might be interesting to start one of my own.  That is where the “Nail Files: Bare All Tag” comes into play.  Many of us love our pretty polished fingers, me included, but what about the natural nails that lurk beneath the enamel?  They just don’t get much attention unless we’re prepping them for yet another coat of a lovely lacquer of our choice.  I feel it’s time to strip the polish and bare all in a show of solidarity ladies!  At least long enough to snap a photo and answer a few questions, I’m not a monster after all.  So please join me, show your naturally beautiful nails and share some information about them and the products you prefer to pamper them with.

If you would like to participate just copy and paste the following text and just fill in your own information.
