Nail polish color names, amirite ladies? Anyone who takes more than a passing interest in nail polish knows that they can be a little bit over the top sometimes. And by “over the top,” I mean “named after the trashiest aspects of female-oriented culture, and sometimes random foods.” I’m not going to go so far as to call them anti-feminist, as some (like “pornstar”) are only offensive to the anti-porn brigades, and we can choose our choice, etc. I also think a lot of them are pretty tongue-in-cheek, because with names like that, you have got to be joking at least a little, right? Nonetheless, I think the people who name the nail polishes would agree that in an effort to capture people’s attention, they often turn to the ridiculous and the inflammatory. To illustrate my point, I made a quiz. Can you tell the real nail polish color names from the ones I made up? Answers are at the end! More
