This color is from the Queen Collection which is inspired by five legendary Women of Color Queens from around the world.  This color here is inspired by Rani Chennamma, the Queen of Kittur (a region of India), was one of the first Indian rulers to lead an armed rebellion against the British East India Company in 1824 and the implementation of the Doctrine of Lapse.

Her rebellion against the British ended with her imprisonment, however, she became a celebrated freedom fighter in the state of Karnataka and a symbol of the independence movement in India. This color was named in honor of her story of rebellion against British rule in India. The color represents the horse she is sometimes depicted on while riding into battle.

People of Color Beauty was founded by Jacqueline Carrington, who growing up never saw images of nail polish reflected on her skin tone or the skin tones of other girls and women she knew, which made her skip nail polish all together. When her 3-year old daughter Monroe started coming home with painted nails after visits with her GiGi, Jacqueline was inspired to make sure that her daughter had an experience very different from her own.

When she started People of Color she knew that the most important commitment she wanted to make was to showcase the many skin tones within brown communities all over the world in both color selection and product marketing.  She wanted to make a nail polish brand that was made to complement the various shades of brown skin and for those skin tones to be represented in all advertising for the products. People of Color® is nail polish for "People of Color and those who live in color”
