A England Avalon

I finally had to use my “proper” camera to photograph my nails for this post. However I adjusted the settings on my mobile camera, I just couldn’t faithfully capture the purple of A England Avalon. It just kept on coming out blue.

So I dusted off the DSLR and bit the bullet (still didn’t do any special lighting though – maybe that will come some day, who knows?)

I had been really reluctant to remove my last manicure – which was sparkly turquoise glitter – not only because it was a glitter, and they’re a pain to remove, but also because I was loving it so much. But after four days (a record for me), it had a bit more tip wear than I could bear and it really needed to come off.  For the first time ever, I used the foil removal method, which I have to agree certainly reduces the time and aggravation of taking off a glitter manicure.

Anyway, onto A England Avalon. It’s a vibrant, metallic purple with a magenta shimmer to it. It looks fantastic. I’m not sure that even with the camera I have captured it that well, but at least it looks purple not blue!
