A-England Tristam Swatch and Review!

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers! I hope you all had a great weekend! I spent this last weekend in Chicago with the bf and my family (and yes, I did get 4 new polishes thanks to my mom) AND the new iPhone 4s! It's so fun! But, enough about me! Today I have the last of my 3 new A-England polishes, the lovely Tristam, so without further ado, on to the polish!

Above: 2 coats of Tristam

Ah Tristam, (or as he's known more often in Arthurian Legend) was a sexy knight of the round table. The polish that uses his namesake is a gorgeous dark blue, almost a denim blue, that is packed full of shimmer. After 2 coats it was perfectly opaque, the formula was just wonderful as all the other A-England polishes I've tried, and I just love it. But wait! There is a surprise hidden in this polish!

In the light, it's holo! It's a scattered holo, not as strong as could be seen in Lady of the Lake, but it's so pretty! I love a good hidden holo, don't you? Here is a quick macro shot of Tristam:

All in all, I loved Tristam! It's definitely unique in my collection because I don't have too many scattered holos and certainly not a dark blue one! I absolutely love the formula on these A-England polishes, definitely worth the money.

What do you all think of Tristam? Do you like the hidden holos? Are there any other A-England polishes I should get?
