"Hey man, it's just because I like TV and I like nail polish, ok?" I defensively explained this to the cashier as soon as I reached the counter, who then looked down and stifled laughter...either at my purchase or at my register-side manner.
Lezzzzz back up.
I came home late from a garbagey day of school, work and ugh, rehearsal, to my dear chum who said nothing but, "I have a present for you. It's in the kitchen." Expecting food or murder-bits I walked into the kitchen to see a bottle of bright purple nail polish in the middle of the counter.
"Aw, cool!" I said.
"No. Look at it."
So I picked it up, turned it over a few times in my drag queen-sized fingers...and that's when I saw it.
WHAT WHAT WHAAAAAAAAT?!?!
Apparently, Wet n' Wild has...errr...cosmetics companies don't "publish" huh...um...I don't know, like, "put out" a line of nail polishes that have TV show title-puns for color names. What does this mean for me? I can WATCH TV while painting my nails THE SAME COLOR AS THE TV SHOW I'M WATCHING! Obviously, a pretty momentous thing for a dull, shallow person.
It took about a week and a half before I was unable to just appreciate an incredibly thoughtful little present, and I had to follow my thirrrrst for cheap, stupid crap.
After getting over my shame enough to approach that cashier, I am now the proud owner of Fuschia Rama, 188.8.131.52.Orange, and Sagreena the Teenage Witch.
If you would like to see the other titles, please visit the blog of this other person who apparently blogs about nail polish too. It's a very exciting journey:
