I just managed to get my hands on a-England Briarwood, one of their new Burne-Jones collection, and it was absolutely worth the wait and the price. In my opinion, it is by far the best of an already impressive collection. It's a deep maroon-burgundy-brownish red soft linear holographic, and if that sounds like a confusing color description, it's because this is such a pretty, special color. Unlike the other polishes in the collection, this is not a scattered holo, but actual has that linear flash--it's subtle, but it is absolutely there:

So what kind of nail art do you do on a polish like this, which is already mesmerizing? I was inspired by the Nail Challenge Collaborative's July theme of flowers, and decided to do something with a subtle spray of flowers to accent the spray of holographic flash in the polish. I stamped with China Glaze Passion to complement the gold in the sparkle of the polish, and I used an image from Konad plate m5. Finally, I added a few extra dots to amp up the design just a little:
I was supposed to redo my nails last night, and I still have this on, because I love this polish so much, and I love the accent so much. Yes, I believe this polish is definitely back-up worthy...
