a-england – Fotheringhay Castle

Press Sample


I'm carrying on with another a-england polish from the Elizabeth & Mary collection, even though 'Queen of Scots' is a hard act to follow. This polish, 'Fotheringhay Castle', has also been worn a LOT! Here's why...

Every time I have worn 'Fotheringhay Castle', I've had so many people ask what it is and where they can get it? Their response is always that it's an unexpected colour, but that they love it. I'm not surprised that I love it – a gold-leaning olive green with a blackened edge AND subtle scattered holo.

I feel like a bit of a broken record when I talk about a-england and their formula, but as usual this was super easy to work with. I used 2 coats, but 1 was basically enough. I did thin this polish out slightly at some point, but it's my personal preference to apply 2 thinner coats than 1 slightly thicker one.

a-england polishes can be purchased from a lot of places around the world. You can only order direct from them if you are in the UK, but be sure to check out their list of worldwide distributors to find a place close to where you live. You can also follow a-england on TwitterFacebook and Instagram to keep up with the latest news from them.

  1. I love a-England polishes and it's the only brand that I own all of the polishes :-| except the base and top coats. I've tried the base coat and it's amazing :-) My purse, however, isn't a fan LOL ;-)

    This is one gorgeous colour and looks amazing on you :-D

    1. Thanks and yes I think they're my favourite brand. I have almost all of them - I think I'm missing only a few but I will get them one day I'm sure.
