The constant princess

It’s not me, don’t get too excited (even though I do think that some day I will be a princess – or Keanu Reeves’ fiancee, with a preference on the latter). The Constant Princess is a novel by Philippa Gregory focused on the figure of Katherine of Aragon, the Spanish princess, daughter of Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon, who became Henry VIII’s first wife. 

The polish with the same name, a masterpiece by A England, somehow reminds me of the character in the book: soft and subdued, but with an inner flame. By far the most beautiful neutral shade that I own!

The base is a pale gold (should I call it a beige? I really don’t know, I’m the worst with colours and nuances), but there’s a ton of tiny bright gold flakies running through it and the combination is a treat for the eye.

Adina, if you can hear me, you are a polish genius! I’d marry you, if I wasn’t engaged with Keanu.

That’s all, folks, see you next time!
