F Is for Friday: Fingernail Polish

I am a sucker for a good nail polish color. OPI is my favorite brand. If you click on the link, you can "try on" the color on a fake hand! w00t! (Warning: Not the most modest photos are used on the site. Proceed at your own risk.)

I often wonder how the companies choose their nail color names. One of my most recent purchases of OPI included one that's called "Aphrodite's Pink Nightie." Hmm... Well, yes, it is a lovely light shade of pink...with a bit of shimmer. (Not too much for a woman getting awfully close to her mid 30s.)

Wonder if OPI got together with Jelly Belly jelly beans and mixed up some fruity-candy-inspired colors. (Or worse -- the nasty flavors included in Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans... eek! Boogers!!) Can you imagine Juicy Pear? A light version of that bright lime green that is so popular right now, with spots of darker green.....maybe.

Love the Blueberry Jelly Belly, but what flavor would periwinkle be? You eat all the pear flavored ones & save the lemon, limes & tangerines for me!
