nail polish names
Does anyone want a polish more if the color has an absolutely awesome name?
Of course, I still have to like the actual product in the bottle. But if it has a cool name, I'll tend to want it more.
1. I am a dancer. I recently discovered OPI's Urban Ballerina Collection. I now very much want "Leotard Optional,"
a gorgeous shade with a just-as-gorgeous name. Sadly, it is 9.50, and I have never paid more than five dollars for a polish.
2. Another pricey polish, this time from Nails Inc. I loooovvee the UK, their flag, Kate and William, their food, the history. Which is why I am excited over their collection, which has a tonnnn of shades, all named after famous locations in Britain. I mean, come on. "Brook Street."
It's a gorgeous shade, a place in Britain, and my name is Brooke! Not to mention that the packaging is pretty cool looking. It sells itself. I also am liking Warwick Avenue.
Of course, I won't buy a polish just for the name. But does it get anyone else just a little bit more excited over the product?
I have to say that I buy by color first. I hear such great names on some colors that I just know would look awful on me, or I just hate the color. But it is a bonus if the name and color are cute.
Yes! If anything is ever named 'Charlotte,' I'm going to have to buy it! (Even if I have practically the same color by another brand with a different name, lol.)
I do always go for color first, but is'a a pleasant surprise when I flip over the bottle and there's a cute name!
My favorite name by far is Kinky in Helsinki! It's a slightly dark hot pink.
I have 5 nailpolishes and 1 topcoat and none of them have a cute name, they are all very basic names ( Dreamy, Vineyard...). I never look at the name first. I look at the colors offered and the color always seems to choose ME. When I see something I like, it pops out among the rest. Right now I'm really loving Nina's Ultra Pro in Punki Pink.
