Did you have a fun weekend? I definitely did! It was really relaxing and I got a lot of good, quality friend and family time in, which is always really nice. And Lily's Super Bowl party was so much fun! She's literally the best party host ever... I think she only sat down for a total of two minutes because she was busy buzzing around tending to all her guests. We all ate so much I was SO full... ugh! It also makes sense then that she's the best hostess ever... if there was a #1 hostess in American award, I would vote for her!
Another great thing about her party besides all the great food was that there were a few girls there who love nail polish! I always get so excited when I find people that want to talk about nails and obsess over them. It literally makes my day. I was really glad I was wearing such a beautiful shade that day too, and it's the polish I'm going to show you today!
It's called Dragon by a England, and... LOVE. Absolutely LOVE. Click on the link below to see more pictures and a review!
I love the sense of fantasy a England expresses through polish. All of a England's collections have a story, and a England's Legend collection is no exception. Dragon is one of the six polishes from this collection, which was released last February I believe, and Dragon is such an appropriate name! The color of this polish is pretty much exactly the color I imagine dragons to be - I can't decide if it's more of a darker mossy green or an olive green, or somewhere in between (definitely didn't mean to rhyme there). Regardless, it's a gorgeous shade of green. But there's so much more to it. There is a gold/copper shimmer that really comes out in the sun, and there's also an amazing yet subtle linear holo! Holo, shimmer, and green? Perfection in a bottle, if you ask me.
This is my second polish from a England, and I can now officially say I'm a fan. St. George is the other color I have, and you can see my post about it here. Both polishes are gorgeous green shades, but they're definitely different! St. George is much darker and has a lot more blue in it, almost to the point that it leans teal. Dragon, on the other hand, is a definitive green color.
One thing I love most about these two a England polishes I've tried is the formula. Not only are the colors beautiful, but both could be one-coaters if you're careful with the first coat. They flow very nicely and apply like a dream. I took a bunch of pictures because I really wanted to capture this baby in all its glory. Hopefully I did a good job!
And now, without further adieu, here's two coats of Dragon with one coat of top coat.

So what do you guys think? Do you love Dragon as much as I do? Because I'm just a little obsessed. I wish I had bought more polishes during a England's promo, but I'm happy that I was at least able to get this one! I wore it for literally 4 days straight, which is a really big deal for me. I didn't get tired of it and I didn't want to take it off!
Anyways, enough of the rambling. Thanks for reading, and have a very happy Tuesday!
