Natural daylight bottles and swatches, here you can really see the differences

Perfect Pinks – an A England comparison

Since I did one for all the purples and because it was requested I have done a quick comparison of 3 of the pinks available at the moment from A England. This was requested by Jess after viewing the Autumn/Winter 2016 collection “Tennyson’s Romance” and is something I had thought of doing anyway as “Shall Be My Queen” looks very similar in the bottle to “Rose Bower”.

First up is a picture of them in my room with the overhead light switched on. Briar Rose didn’t really need to be in this comparison as it is a much more dusty purple pink than the other two but I included it just in case anyone was curious.

You can really see in the artificial light that Rose Bower has a deeper red tone to it than Shall Be My Queen, though Adina herself has stated that Shall Be My Queen is a light red rather than a pink.

I also wanted to compare them in natural daylight as that’s what you’ll hopefully get to see them in when you wear these polishes. You can see in the picture above that Rose Bower is in fact a deeper red than Shall Be My Queen in daylight though both are very red-toned.

The holographic effect that direct sunlight brings out makes it a little harder to compare but again you can see Rose Bower giving out a darker red look.

I hope these pictures help you to decide which ones you like. The bottles can look very similar but once on the nails there are actually quite large differences between Shall Be My Queen and Rose Bower. I’m not a pink person at all, in fact the only pink polishes I own are the 4 available in A England and 2 more that were presents from friends but I do love these 3 and would say they are all different enough to warrant getting them all.Personally I’d probably choose Rose Bower if forced to pick only one though as it is the most red to me. What do you guys think?
