Zoya Crystal

Crystal is my one and only Zoya polish. I have nothing against Zoya, it's just not a brand that's easy to get hold of in the UK. I found Crystal in a random nail salon when I was living on the Isle of Wight (or The Island as I like to call it) last year.

Zoya Crystal was part of Zoya's autumn/winter collection a couple of years ago. It's a blue foil with gold flecks, and it. Is. Gorgeous. Applying it was a doddle and it was opaque in two coats. I took way too many photos of it; the first four are in the shade, and the last two are trying to capture the last of the evening sun from my bathroom window! XD

Random fact: Crystal was the name of a hamster I had as a child. My pets all had silly names when I was little: Snowy the hamster, Crystal the hamster, Snuffs the rabbit (prompted a lot of "Snuffs snuffed it" jokes from people when he died. I was not amused), Smokie the guinea pig, Owen the guinea pig (named after Michael Owen), Roxy the hamster, and finally dear Claude. It looks like over the years I've matured from cute names to human names for pets!

What do you think of Zoya Crystal? And have you had any pets with silly names?
