A prize-winning novel interpreted via nail polish

I'm not sure what's up with the sudden trend toward literature-inspired nail polish, but whatever: I like books and I like nail polish, so I'll just roll with it. I'm particularly impressed by these upcoming Rescue Beauty Lounge colors, inspired by Hilary Mantel's Man Booker Prize-winning novel Wolf Hall, a fictionalized account of the life of Thomas Cromwell. The colors are named after four of the wives of Henry the VIII: Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, and Catherine Howard. I've never cared about Katherine Parr, although I was a little bummed poor Anne of Cleves didn't get her own color (400+ years later, she's still getting stiffed on the beauty front!), but otherwise I love these colors--Anne Boleyn and Catherine of Aragon's shades are particularly gorgeous.
