What Does Your Favorite Nail Polish's Name Say About You?

May 13, 2010 by Eileen Conlan

If you watch women at a nail salon, the first thing they do after picking up a  shade is turn it over…to examine the name. I’m guilty of it–if I don’t like the name, I probably won’t go for the color.

Mine are aspirational: I’ve always liked the classic Ballet Slippers by Essie even though I only made it through one year of ballet lessons and when I really need a vacation, I tend to go towards OPI’s Barefoot in Barcelona even though I probably wouldn’t walk the streets without shoes on, and I have no plans to travel to Europe in the near future.

If you love OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques, does it mean you’re an impatient know-it-all, or if you like OPI’s vampy red “I’m Not Really A Waitress,” if you lead a double life?

After Salon.com saw a polish called “12 inch gang bang” (seriously?), they called up the author of the blog, Stupid Nail Polish Names to have a chat. Her take: the market is getting crowded, and to stand out from the pack, some polishes, like BleachBlack,  coming up with going sensational, with names like “Jizz” and “Dick Weed” in their arsenal.

What are your favorite nail polish colors–and what do you think they say about you?
