A-England Briar Rose from the Burne-Jones Dream Collection

A-England Briar Rose

A-England is nothing if not consistent. Their polishes are always beautiful and eye catching with wonderful formulas. Today's polish is, of course, no exception: meet Briar Rose.

A-England Briar Rose

Briar Rose is a cranberry shade with a coarse holographic effect. When it is in direct light, as shown in the two photos above, the holo comes to life, and it glows a gorgeous rosy pink.

When in indirect light, as shown in the two photos below, the holo lends a nice visual texture without greying out the base color too much.

The formula was wonderful, applying smoothly, evenly, and with great pigmentation. I'm sure many of you could get away with one coat. I've used two here.

A-England Briar Rose

This polish is from the Burne-Jones Dream collection, and I can say with confidence that the rest of the polishes in the collection are beautiful, too. A-England polishes are available from a number of distributors in the US; you can view a list on the A-England website.


  1. I've got two from this collection, Briar Rose included. It is stunningly gorgeous and happened to be my gateway A-England, lol. Beautiful photos.

  2. i love a england! tristam and lady of the lake are my faves. my only problem, i have had my 9 bottles of a england since may (when i first discovered a england), and half of them have started to get thick and difficult to use. so, i added 3 drops of non-acetone polish remover to tristam and shook it up. i let it sit, deciding to give it a break and use dragon instead. the next day, it had turned from a gorgeous dark blue to complete black. it lost all its holo goodness, and looked like a plain black creme. anyone else had that happen? ive always just added a few drops of polish remover to a thick polish, shook it a few times, and it thinned enough to use again quite easily. ive never seen a polish react like this.

    the polishes that have not thickened; iseult, princess tears, dragon, and dorian gray. the 5 polishes that have thickened since may; tristam, lady of the lake, saint george, bridal veil, and camelot. i wont dare ruin my other a england polishes by trying to thin them out with polish remover! any suggestions on how to thin but not destroy them?

  3. oh noooo! polish remover can actually break down nail polish over time; it's not good to add. you can instead buy various polish thinners made specifically to de-thicken your polishes. i use seche restore, personally, but lots of brands make them! you can go to your local beauty supply (or probably drug store/chemist) and look for polish thinners.

  4. Yep, Sara has the right idea! Polish remover can definitely break down polish and I'm sure that's why it turned black. Nail polish thinner is the way to go... I use Beauty Secrets Thinner from Sally Beauty.

  5. thanks! theres a sallys near my house, ill go there. i didnt think anything of it when i added the remover to it, as ive used remover to thin out polishes for over 20 years and never had a problem. poor tristam, to be the first, and hopefully only, casualty in my polish arsenal! she was so

  6. lol! yeah, i had a similar issue - it wasn't a problem until it SUDDENLY WAS, and i didn't want to destroy any other precious bottles. )': hopefully it's okay to post links - here's a science-y post about why it works sometimes and why, for other polish/remover combos, it doesn't!

  7. ♥ it! Looks stunning on you :).

  8. This is so gorgeous -- it looks like a dream! I love how the holo effect adds a hint of blurple!
