A England's Burne-Jones Dream Collection sets the stage for bruised rose petal gradient nails!
Hello, Darlings! For today’s post I pulled out two polishes that I’ve actually swatched before. From the A England Burne-Jones Dream collection I decided to use Briar Rose and Sleeping Palace.
Together, in a subtle gradient, these polishes help to capture the beauty of a rose once its petals have been bruised and begin to darken. When I was younger I would participate in tons of performances – dance recitals, school plays, jazz ensembles, etc. If there was an event that warranted bouquets of flowers from doting parents, I was there with bells on!
After my performances I would take those bouquets and dry my favorite flowers. My favorite part of the process was when you could see the fresh beauty of each petal merging with a darker, dryer fate. Now it sounds incredibly morbid, but at the time I thought it was cool how the colors would change gradually at first and then suddenly all at once.
Annnnywho, let’s pretend that I wasn’t a weird kid and focus instead on this manicure! Once again I find myself incredibly impressed with the A England polish formula – it applies beautifully and blends really well when used in a bruised rose petal gradient. I love how the holographic formula adds depth without lighting up like a rainbow disco ball (don’t get me wrong, I love rainbow disco ball manicures… but there is a time and a place!).
Long story short, I’m a fan – what about you? 😀
