Nail polish puns!
So, I generally don't wear nail polish. It chips too easily and I can't afford regular manicures. And I pick the hell out of my cuticles so I don't generally like to draw attention to my hands. However, I have always been amused by nail polish names. My friend Heinz created some fictional racist polish colors after discovering that "Black Rage" was, in fact, a real color. I'm more entertained by OPI's recent country- and region-themed collections which take bad puns to a whole new level.
Consider, for example, the colors in their new Swiss collection:
From A to Z-urich, Color So Hot It Berns, Just a Little Rösti at This, William Tell Me About OPI, Ski Teal We Drop, Diva of Geneva, Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous, Glitzerland, Yodel Me on My Cell, and Cuckoo for This Color.
GROAN. And I thought Carrie Bradshaw's puns were bad.
Inspired by OPI, however, I'd like to propose some Boston-themed colors:
Ben A Fleck of Gold
Boston Teal Party
Red Sox Rage
Louisa May Top Coat
Orange You Glad You Don't Live Off the Orange Line
Kelly's Roast Beef Green
Jamaica Plain Beige
Sam Adams Apple Red
I'm sure I'm missing some obvious ones....fellow Beantowners, feel free to chime in in the comments!
