Briar Rose - a-england


I have the final polish from a-england's Burne-Jones Dream collection. I said the other day on Twitter that this collection has made me remember what I love about nail polish and in particular a-england. Every single one has been absolutely stand-out and this last one is no different. Today's polish is 'Briar Rose - Sleeping Beauty'.

'Briar Rose' is such a beautiful cranberry-leaning rose colour. It has fairly purple undertones and in my opinion is just down-right flattering. The holo in 'Briar Rose' is not at all shy, but at the same time it's not totally outrageous. That good old scattered linear effect that I love.

When it catches the light, 'Briar Rose' gives off the most glorious glow. It is so beautiful and so elegant with the holo just giving it that little bit of edge!

As has been a running theme throughout this collection, the formula was spectacular. How does Adina do it? This was yet another 1 coater (though yes, you are seeing 2 coats entirely because I cannot do a neat first coat).

a-england polishes can be purchased from a lot of places around the world. Unfortunately, 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.
