a-england - Fated Prince

Hi everyone!

Today swatches of a gorgeous charcoal gray holographic polish: a-england Fated Prince.

Fated Prince is part of the five piece Burne-Jones Dream collection that was released in 2013 and it's a one-coater if your coats aren't too thin.

I used two coats and a layer of Seche Vite to protect the polish.

Fated Prince shows a really nice scattered holographic effect in the sunshine or under direct light. Unfortunately the sun decided not to show her face and it rained all day, so this is a picture with flash so you can see the rainbows.

I was surprised by the warm tone this polish had. I expected it to be much cooler, so the color I wanted to use to stamp over it was changed to a-england Excalibur (the silvery gold version). I really shouldn't have stamped over it at all as Fated Prince is way too beautiful to be hidden beneath other colors. The colors looks nice together though.

I used MoYou London Sailor 05 to stamp and I messed up my pinky so bad I actually painted the entire nail in Excalibur... and removed the manicure shortly after that because I really didn't like it.

I have to apologize for the bad quality of this picture. I took it just before removing the manicure so I couldn't make a better one when I realized it looked like it does :(

Do you think stamping over holographic polishes is always doomed to fail?
