Now, let me clarify my title before you go thinking that a-England‘s Princess Sabra, from The Legends collection, isn’t all that and a bag of chips.
<Oh yea, I just used that lame old saying!>
What I mean about Princess Sabra not being gold, is that it’s not – it’s a golden olive shimmer, and there’s a difference.See, the reason why it matters is because, when I put in my initial order for a handful of polishes from The Legends collection (Princess Tears, Ascalon, and Saint George), I skipped out on Princess Sabra because it looked like a gold holo prismatic polish, of which I already own one. However, I was sorely mistaken.Princess Sabra, or Tristam Eyes – as it is said to be the same shade as a-England creator Adina’s cat’s eyes, Tristam – is a beautiful shimmering soft olive green shade with a hint of bronze and a myriad of rainbow hues infused throughout. It does have strong gold leanings, but is definitely not straight-up gold. The polish is completely unique and absolutely stunning, and once I realized the error of my ways, I ordered it IMMEDIATELY.As usual, the formulation is lovely, flowing easily on the nail with just the right amount of thickness. The finish is glossy though not overly so. I did use three coats in the swatches here, as I found this particular shade a touch sheer. But three coats to gloriousness is really not a problem when you then get to gaze at nails like this!There’s really not much else to say. I’m SO pleased I picked this up, and I love that due to the gentle color it’s pretty much wearable in all seasons, and across plenty of skintones. I suggest if you don’t own this shade…just go buy it. Seriously. There’s no reason to wait – and a-England boasts free shipping everywhere, so you’ve got no excuse!
Are you as enthralled by Princess Sabra as I am??
