I love the Arthurian legends. I grew up convinced I could pull a sword from a stone… provided I could find one, and that pale arms will appear from the middle of a lake if I threw a sword into it. I wanted a sword named Excalibur and I wanted to be a Knight of the Round Table, and have a wizard called Merlin.
It never once crossed my mind that they didn’t exist. Why shouldn’t it? 😀
Perhaps that’s why I went to England – to see if King Arthur does exist and if there are any modern day Knights of the Round Table (Answer: No and No 😛 )
Anyway, a reader Yin Huei wrote me one day and told me to check out a-England nail polishes. They are a little outfit from the UK and the minute I hopped to the store, I knew I was sold. Every single polish in the store is named after an Arthurian character. Gah! I wanted every single one! Nevermind that I don’t use polish – I’d learn goshdarnit!
I picked up a couple just for testing purposes (there are a couple of sets available for a limited period only), and today I bring you my New Year manicure in a blingy golden silver haze of Holy Grail and Merlin.
