Sleeping Palace is one of A England's new Burne-Jones Dream collection. This is made up of 5 polishes and the shades are based on paintings by Edward Burne-Jones, who was a designer and painter. I have also just found out that he worked closely with William Morris.
As I did architecture at University I am obviously familiar with (and love) the works of William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement, but had never heard of Byrne-Jones. Maybe my love of this style and era explains why the shades in this collection attract me so much and I think, having tried this one, I MUST have them all!!!
Sleeping Palace is a dusky purple with a holographic shimmer, it is extremely wearable as a beautiful muted shade, but then as it catches the light the holo shimmer is just gorgeous!
I wore this yesterday to meet some lovely friends in London, and I was proud to have such a wonderful polish on my nails. The sun shone and they looked just stunning.
Coverage was great, one coat was almost enough but I did two just to be sure. They are wearing well, and if possible I am loving it more and more, watch out Saint George - you might not still be my number one!!
I took a few pics with flash when I first applied it and then a few more when the sun came out.
