The King's Mistress

I’m not sure if the creators of China Glaze were thinking of Henry VIII of England when they named this polish, but he is what comes to mind when I see this polish. This rich purple is so dark that it’s almost black once dry, and is reminiscent of the sumptuously rich tones of velvet and of midnight trysts in palace alcoves. Oh to be a lady of the court of the Tudor era! Thanks to Kirsten for getting me this polish (one of my first lemmings)! I know you’ll at least appreciate the historical reference in this polish :p
