Review and swatches of A England Excalibur (new revamped version), comparison and nail art design!

*This post contains PR sample

Hello lovelies,

As you may know, A England has introduced some new shades apart from the recent Burne-Jones Dream collection. I'll show you one of them today. I'm talking about revamped version of Excalibur! I personally love the original metallic silver Excalibur, it is my favourite silver so I'm sad to see it going. The new one is also beautiful though...

Excalibur (revamped) - golden silver foil with coppery gold flakes. This colour is very hard to describe because it's not pure silver or pure gold but kind of a mix of both. The formula is excellent like with all other A England shades. It applied very well and two coats were enough for full coverage. There were no streaks despite the foil finish.

I've done a comparison for you of both A England Excaliburs and shades close to them. Btw would you like to see more  comparison pictures like the one below?

And I've also done some doodling over Excalibur using Barry M Nail Art Pen Black :)

  1. i love it, but i never understood why they change a polish soooo much, and leave the same name. why not just add another polish ?

    1. I get what you mean. This is in fact only second revamped shade after Holy Grail. My guess is that they just weren't sold as much

    2. I would've said in that case that they discontinue the original and bring out the new version as an entirely new thing. But hey, that's just me.

      Loving the design work!

    3. I would like the same thing rather than having the confusion over new and old version

  2. The polish looks very unique and interesing!

  3. Wait, I take that back. Just saw the swatches of the new China Glaze collection, right after I read this post here.
    Check out CG Gossip Over Gimlets, they could be quiet similar..

    Nevertheless, I never saw a polish like this before, maybe the flecks are a new trend coming up ..

  7. Probably the first polish of A-England that I don't like at all ... Let's hope its the last one as well :)
    Sweet nail art though :) Love it!

  8. I SO want a nail art pen now <3
    I like the new one better...more individual and super pretty! Although it's super similar to the OPI

  9. The new one is more unique but the original appeals to me more. I don't like it when colors reuse names, though. If you want it to replace the original pay homage to the name with something like "Shining Excalibur" or "Excalibur's Edge". =)

  10. I love this kind of finish, so I'm all over the new version of Excalubir! :33

  11. Very nice, I want some now :)
