Jubilee Nails

Good morning beautiful people! How are you doing?
Today, in honor of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (60 years!) some blogger friends and I have decided to dedicate today to British polishes.
So I would like to introduce you today to the lovely Princess Sabra by A-England.

Princess Sabra is definitely a royal polish! It is a beautiful pale gold with olive undertone and an incredible holographic touch. It's formula is perfect, levels itself nicely and completely opaque at two coats. It dries quickly to a smooth and glossy finish and is just as easy at removing.
Personally, I think this polish is a MUST to any collection. There is always that time when you need that golden touch, without shouting it to anyone's face.

Well, here comes the fail: since this is a special post - group post - for me, I wanted to do something other then just a swatch. But I didn't have much time so I decided to try some stamping again.

The polish I chose for the stamping is a gorgeous green, also by A-England, called Dragon.
Alas, stamping and me are not yet good friends :-(   This is my attempt. A complete fail. 
But I do hope to get the hang of it, and get it right in my future tries.

Love it! ♥ And don't worry, stamping hates me so much I've yet to manage to even get any polish onto the stamper! You're miles ahead of me!

It is such a great colour on you. I really regret I didn't buy it. And don't worry, stamping hates me with a vengeance too :D s

Ohhh I'm sorry you dislike the result!

While learning and experimenting with stamping I found a trick that worked for me, in case I did a big mess... Well, the trick is messy in itself, but quite useful :) I layer a thick coat of top coat over the base. This way, is my stamping is a fail, I can remove it with polsih remover without ruining my base color. You only need to apply another layer of top coat, let it dry, and try again.

I hope it works for you too :)

Ooh, Princess Sabra is so pretty! I love how it shines, even in lower light, and the olive undertones you mentioned give it a really nice tint.

I also have yet to make friends with my stamper--good idea from Criminal Nails! :)

Princess Sabra looks gorgeous, unlike any other polish I have seen! I wish A-England was easy to find here in the US. :-)
