Hey everybody! I did a crazy thing. I totally forgot I owned a-England Briarwood. FORGOT. I told you it's been a rough year :P
I was digging through the ol' collection to rustle up some autumn hues, when there it was, the arguable gem of the Burne-Jones Dream collection, Briarwood. Briarwood is a deep reddish brown color infused with an especially (or it seemed to me) colorful scattered holo.
I've only had experience with one other a-England polish, Briar Rose. Briarwood wore for two days before I got a chip versus one day with Briar Rose. That's not to say Briar Rose doesn't wear well; it is highly unusual for me to go two days without a chip. Blasted chemistry!!
One reason I love holos like this is because I think they look literally dusty. Magically dusty! Briarwood has a lot of gold going on in the holo particles. I used two coats of this very lovely polish. The only issue I had with it was that it did stick a bit to my unpleasantly hard cuticle area. But since I seem to the be the only person in the universe who has that problem, you should be just fine!
a-England is available at Color4Nails. What's been your experience with a-England?
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day. <3
