If you check out nail blogs, you’ll no doubt see that the a-england Burne-Jones Dream Collection has been receiving a lot of love from nailphiles.
I can see why people are digging it! 🙂 The formulas are so pigmented and smooth.
Recently, I wore a-england Fated Prince, which NailPolishCanada was generous to provide.
It was no exception to the rule – a-england nail polishes are a-mazing! 😉 Hehe, sorry, but I couldn’t resist making that pun.

a-england Fated Prince Review
Fated Prince by a-england is a deep grey with a scattered rainbow, thanks to the holographic finish. Had I snapped photos of this beauty in the sunlight, you would’ve seen the effect more dramatically.
Some grey nail polishes are dull or remind you of cement. Fated Prince, however, is edgy and interesting. Drab and boring are adjectives that I definitely wouldn’t associate with it!
It has a scattered holographic finish, so in the sunlight, you can see a sprinkling of every shade in the rainbow running along your nails. It’s really fun to look at, and that’s what sets itself apart from other polishes in this colour family.
Application & Formula
Wow, I’m seriously impressed with a-england because this polish was extremely pigmented and smooth. This was a one-coater, but I used 2 out of habit.
The finish is really smooth and shiny, and the formula was a breeze to work with. I wish that all nail polishes applied this easily.
I feel like this is the type of lacquer that’s perfect for nailphiles who are beginners. Instead of having to worry about dealing with a bad formula, you can focus on your nail-painting skills. Easy peasy way to help build your confidence! 🙂
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
If you’ve never tried a-england nail polishes before, I highly recommend them. Although I’ve only tried a few so far, every single one I’ve tried has been extremely pigmented and a dream to apply!
And, after interacting with my awesome readers, I’ve discovered that they have amazing greens – Saint George and Dragon. Guess what? I purchased those recently! After I wear them and photograph them, I’ll be reviewing them. Super excited about those! (Hehe, you know me and greeeeeeeeeens!) 😉
What’s your favourite a-england nail polish? Have you purchased any colours from the Burne-Jones Dream Collection? What nail polish would you recommend nail newbies try because the formulation is easy to work with?
