GOT Polish Challenge - Skittle Me This, A-England!
I'm a new member of the GOT (Golden Oldie Thursday) challenge. If you're not familiar, the idea is to use older polishes (at least a year old) that just haven't gotten any love in a while. I have been using so many untrieds, there are lots of Golden Oldies in my stash.
Still, I was uneasy doing a whole mani - and a skittle at that! - without cracking open at least ONE untried. But, I did it. And, boy am I happy I did.
Do you recognize any of these lovely holos? These were among the first polishes I bought when I found myself interested in polish again. I saw a pix of A-England Saint George, and FELL HARD. Had to have it. This was before I knew about nail polish blogs, or Facebook groups, so I did all the leg work myself.
Putting it on again was almost a spiritual experience! Talk about taking me back to my nail polish roots.
Aren't they cute with the little triangle studs? In order, from thumb to pinky, the polishes are: A-England Ascalon, Lady Of The Lake, Tristam, Saint George, and Dragon. Saint George is still one of my very favorite polishes, even if it is a little bit of a stainer.

Did you feel a little something special when you put on your first nail polish love?
