Hello lovelies,

As you probably know, Adina from A England has introduced new collection called Burne-Jones Dream. This collection is inspired by series of The Legend of Briar Rose (Sleeping Beauty) paintings by Edward Burne-Jones. It consists of five shades infused with scattered holographic particles and they are stunning!

I have decided that I will dedicate a whole post to each colour and then do another post summarizing all of them (I currently have four of them as Briarwood shade will be available in approximately two-week's time). They are all so beautiful that they deserve a lot of pictures, I couldn't bring myself to reducing the number of pictures under 10!

Briar Rose (AKA Sleeping Beauty)- red-based purple with scattered holographic particles. I'm lost for words, this is such beautiful colour! It has slight duochrome effect that shows in the shade and thousands of holo particles sparkling in direct sunlight. This is overall my second favourite shade from this collection, I really like it!

The formula was excellent as we're used to with A England brand. It applied very easily and dried smoothly and pigmentation was great. One thicker coat did provide enough coverage but I've applied second coat to add more depth to the colour and to have completely smooth surface. I've finished off with topcoat.

Hello lovelies,

I've had to remove this manicure from the previous post as it was conflicting with the rules (entry for the Travel Supermarket contest) so here they are in a separate post :)

I've done this manicure on Friday for Saturday's nail blogger meet up in London and couldn't wait for sharing it with you! I call them a 'Holiday Clubbing' manicure. This would be a perfect mani for going out in the evening as it glows under UV/black light!

I have used Illamasqua Seance, Ouija and Omen as the UV glowing polishes and Barry M Nail Art Pen in White for the outline.

How to do this design:

Step 1: Paint your nails with Illamasqua Seance and let it dry properly.
Step 2: Start drawing triangles from the centre of the nail outwards with Barry M Nail Art Pen in White.
Step 3: Fill in some of the triangles with Ouija and Omen polishes using small brush.
Step 4: Draw the white triangles again with Barry M Nail Art Pen in White again for it to stand out.
Step 5: Seal with topcoat.
