Inspired to try the line, I quickly bought the entire set from a-england's Canadian distributor Nail Polish Canada, including The Knight Base Coat and The Shield Top Coat.
I prefer a classic polish--a cream or light shimmer--over the whimsical metallic, glitter or neon shades. This polish has a classic touch with a twist--discreet holographic particles that add depth and character to the colour without being garish or too youthful.
The first polish I tried was Rose Bower, and it is a dream come true. A blue-based red that suits my cool skin tone and doesn't accent the freckles or age spots in my hands.
My nails were prepared with The Knight Base Coat, two coats of polish, and The Shield Top Coat.
