Blue Mondays with a-England Order of the Garter & Pretty & Polished: Forgery

First, some Official Business: I am so close to 100 followers on the Tough As Nails Lacquer Facebook page and once I hit that mark, there is going to be an amazing Indie Polish giveaway happening on the blog! The giveaway will feature Tough As Nails Lacquer, Pretty & Polished, All That Glitters, Dollish Polish, Lynnderella, and more! So if you haven't liked the page on Facebook, do so ASAP.

Okay. Now that that's out of the way -- Happy Blue Monday, everyone! Today I have another great combo, this time from a-England and Pretty & Polished.

Check out a-England Order of the Garter, an amazing blue shimmer:

 Here are two coats of Order of the Garter, no topcoat:

And here is Pretty & Polished Forgery, an amazing glitter holo matte topcoat. So genius. Chelsea makes some of my all time favorite polishes.

 Swoon. Love this manicure. This is one coat of Forgery over two coats of Order of the Garter.
 Closeups to show off the holo:

I truly love both of these brands and highly recommend both of them. Application was great on both.
a-England lacquers can be purchased here (shipping from England) or here (shipping from the US, but to many countries). Make sure to like the a-England Facebook page, too! 

Pretty & Polished lacquers can be purchased here from Chelsea's Etsy shop (and coming soon here). Check out Pretty & Polished's website here or check out Chelsea's Facebook page to stay updated on her polish line and get notices on when polishes will go up for sale.


  1. whoaa these are both amazing, and even more so when they're layered with eachother!! :D

    1. I sincerely LOVE both of these lacquers. I thought that Forgery was going to be boring but I ended up really enjoying it and am excited to try it over other colors.
