Reflecting Crystal and her wigs

Good news, everyone!

What? Huh?

Oh, you'll see.

But first: Zoya's Crystal, from the winter and holiday collection Fire & Ice.

Purrteh! 3 coats. Easy to work with.

Crystal must be the ultimate polish for Swedish royalists. Ultimate. Just look at these guys and dolls:

King Charles XI, or Karl XI as us Swedes prefer to call him...

...and his wife, Ulrika Eleonora...

...and the husband again, together with artist David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl, painted by famous Swedish painter Carl Larsson...

...and Karl's and Ulrika Eleonora's daughter Ulrika Eleonora...

...and her husband Fredrik of Hessen-Kassel...

...and his successor Adolf Fredrik of Holstein-Gottorp...

...and his son and successor Gustavus III (but we call the Gustavuses Gustav)...

...and Gustav III again, but as a kid...

You can totally see where I'm going with this, can't you?

That's right. The ultimate polish for Swedish royalists. Though, I'm not one of them. I just have an unhealthy fascination for wigs.



OPI Reflecting Pool, Zoya Crystal.

And again:

Now, why is this good news? Because, a lot of Americans were bummed that they didn't get the special that for once hit Asia and Europe. Well, now you can fully compensate for that! And, no matter how you look at it, this is also good news for those of you who already own Reflecting Pool- you may just save your money on the Zoya!

Swedish word of the night:
hosta -noun cough

    Crystal is a beauty! I love how it looks like the foiled gold deco in the baroque period!
    I also love baroque wigs, specially if ornamented with reddish-pink flowers <3
