a-england Rose Bower Swatches & Review

a-england Rose Bower Swatches & Reviewa-england Rose Bower from the Burne-Jones Collection is the second a-england nail polish that I’ve ever worn. (You’ll remember getting a sneak peek of it not long ago, if you follow me on Instagram.)

What an honour, I have to say! And it came at the perfect time, too, because I had an a-england itch that I’ve been dying to scratch.

So, ta-da, a-england Sleeping Palace from the Burne-Jones Dream Collection is my very first a-england polish!
