Is A England only available online in the UK? I'd rather see the colours in person but there's only info on non UK stockists on their website and it's really hard thing to do an online search for their name!

Yup, I don't think they have any physical stores carrying it. If you google A England plus the polish name you'll find lots of photos online, that'll be your best bet if you can't see them in person :)

Thanks, lobster!

I put this in the brand thread but will share it here as well: I just got confirmation that Picture Polish do not test on animals and they do not contain any animal ingredients - yay!

It's been too humid to do my nails, and it's making me crazy because I just got my Rescue Beauty Lounge pre-order polishes and they're so pretty I want to wear them!

Just so you know, the RBL label says may contain guanine. I contacted Ji who contacted their lab and checked on specific colors for me, and the lab lady said that none of the colors since she's been formulating them have had guanine, but she doesn't know about the older colors. So they might not be vegan, but it seems like all the new colors are. They're my favorite brand hands down, the formula is almost always perfect, quick drying, usually near opaque in one coat and totally opaque in two.

I ordered Scrangie 2.0 (and I'm glad I did because it sold out in 10 hours, and won't be back til late fall) Fashion Polish, Liberty, and An Accidental Interloper. I wanted Nails and Noms too, but I couldn't justify 5 polishes at $20 a piece at once.

I can't wait for the Fan Collection 2.0 in a few months to see what Ji comes up with next. I really haven't been buying polish at near the frequency I was before, but I always get something from RBL pre-orders.

My nails are in terrible shape. I'm not even sure what to do for them. I realized it wasn't the shellac/gel polish that was the issue so much as the way it's removed. Now my nails are like white and peel-y towards the tips. Down far enough where I can't just cut it off. I've been keeping them bare and using lotion and oil. Anyone have any tips?

Go to Whole Foods and buy the No Miss nail strengthener/hardener thing. It's really good.

Cuticle oil twice a day will help. Also use a buffer and just very very gently buff off the peely bits. Don't go crazy just take off the peelage. Also, a nail strengthener or even just clear polish will help, just something to give a bit of extra strength.

How did they remove them? Shellac application and removal shouldn't cause any damage to your nails if it's done by a properly trained tech (especially if you use solar oil twice a day when it's on) - it's one of their major selling points and one of the reasons I'm thinking of swapping to it.

I do love Gelicure but the removal can be tough and sometimes I don't have time to take as much care during removal on myself as I would with a client. So my nails are a bit crepe without it.

This was technically OPI Gel color. They put a bit of cotton soaked in acetone on the nail, then wrap it in tin foil for maybe five minutes? Then kind of push it off with the cuticle pusher thing. Sometimes they would file on top of the nail which makes my skin crawl. I think it's a combination of the filing, scraping, and acetone. Plus I wasn't as good with oil as I should have been. I did a light buff last night before oil and cream. I really need to cut them a bit though, and I think that's going to be the biggest help.

I will check out the No Miss if I get over to the other Whole Foods. (The one closest to me doesn't really have cosmetics, though they'll sometimes have something special in an end cap.)

Yeah there shouldn't be any scraping and definitely no filing of the nail plate, that'll be why they're damaged. Keep them short for a bit and just keep putting on the cuticle oil. They'll recover! :0)

I finally put on that color changing Ruby Wing polish on, and it looks terrible on me. It's of the tone that makes my fingers look red. I'm going to wait until tomorrow to take it off so I can see it change, but I smudged my thumb while cleaning up around my cuticles and didn't even care.

Also I went to an Ulta today that had Zoya pixie dust, so I got Beatrix which is tangerine orange with gold shimmerzzzzzz. I was going to put that on but I was trying to stick with the challenge.

Yellow mostly only looks good on people with very dark skin (is there any color that doesn't look great other than grey?), so just embrace the bad and have fun.

What do you think of the pixie dust polishes? I'm unconvinced by the textures, but that could be because any unusual texture on my nails drives me bonkers.

I haven't tried it yet, but they're the only textured ones i've seen swatches of that didn't immediately make me want to throw up.

Also this Ruby Wing is my own fault, I know yellow is a finicky color so with my other yellows I purposely searched for cool toned ones to decrease the chances of awful. I was blinded by the big, beautiful display.

I've got a black matte rubber polish and even that skeeves me a bit and it is perfectly smooth. Also: its a bisque to apply because any mistake is magnified by a factor of 158080246. It really does look like car tires though.

Insult to injury: painted a tiny piece of fuzz/hair into my thumb nail. It's dark and this polish is almost pastel. God dammit.

I have two of the Pixie Dust polishes. While I love the colors and the amount of shimmer, I absolutely cannot wear them without top coat. I tried, and didn't make it more than one hour. The texture is just WAY too much for me, and even brushing against the textured nail with my other hand made my skin crawl. I can't even imagine feeling that all day, against everything that my nails come in contact with. <shudder>

But they are lovely with top coat! Defeats the purpose, I guess, but in the end it's pretty polish.

I did that with the glitter, so I was stuck with it (hah!) all week. I've had feathers stuck too.
