Jessica and I traded some polishes for a week or so. I lent her my Birchbox Blogger Trio, and she loaned me A England Tristam and Essie No Place Like Chrome as well as giving me a couple of polishes she had dupes of. Isn't she a great sister? :-)
So I am totally jealous of Tristam. Holy crap, the swatches I have seen do this polish no justice. It's absolutely stunning! All of the posts I have read and also the A England website list Tristam as being BLUE. However, I guarantee you arguments can be made that this polish is very purple. My husband refused to acknowledge it was blue at all and my sister even had it grouped up with her purple swatches instead of her blue. I mean, when you see it with other blues, it really sticks out as being deeply deeply purple, and yet when it's just being gorgeous on your nails, it shifts to being blue and purply-blue. Granted, I don't think any captured pictures of mine strike me as a good foundation for a purple argument. I suppose you should take my word for it or else buy this FREAKING AWESOME POLISH!!! okok, pictures now.
