Holy Grail's formula is fantastic, consistent with the other A England polishes I've tried. Application was smooth and easy. I did find it to be a little sheer, and some of my nails could have done with a third coat, especially on my right hand since I'm worse at applying polish on that hand.
As for the colour, it's an antique-looking yellow gold and shines a bit darker in some lights. It's also insanely shimmery. Definitely a winner!
