A England Russian Soul Collection Review + Swatches

Hey everyone! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. This weekend was my younger sister's birthday and father's day so it's been quite a busy one for me, but it's been nice to spend some time with my family. Today I've got a review of the gorgeous new A-England Russian Soul collection*. The collection consists of 5 majestic holographic glitters ranging from silver to navy, which are described as being inspired by 'Russian music and dance', and all of which are absolutely stunning. I'm still quite new to A-England but the polishes absolutely blow me away every time. Full review after the jump 

Waltz Of The Flowers* is a lovely lilac holographic. This was 2 easy coats, shown without topcoat. The first coat was quite thin and I had expected to need 3, but it evened out with the second coat.

Natasha's Dance/ War And Peace* is a black/blue holographic full of silver glitter. This was just one easy coat, which I was very impressed with. It dried fast and shiny but this is shown with one coat of HK Girl topcoat to see if it gave it anything extra, which it did but I think it was still beautiful without

Katyusha* is a slightly turqoise silver shade. I found this one to have the most visible brush strokes of them all, but it's not too noticeable once the polish has settled on your nail. This was 2 easy coats, shown without topcoat as it dried fast and shiny without

Polovetsian Dances* is a deep purple holographic. This was 2 easy coats but I definitely could have got away with one, I just wanted to see if the second made any difference. This is without topcoat as it dried fast and shiny without

And last but not least is Kalinka*, which is gorgeous lilac-leaning silver. I found this and Katyusha* very similar, except Katyusha is more turquoise-leaning. This was 2 easy coats, shown with topcoat but it looked the same without and it dried fast + shiny.
