AIBU that we should start a MN boycott of Essie nail polish? Just bought a pack of it in the sale that's supposed to be their bridal collection (good colours for work). One of the colours is called 'Hubby for Dessert'. Surely we could lead a MN revolt against such an awful name. Maybe pledge our allegiance to OPI instead and try to persuade them to do a MN range with such shades as LTB and Did You Mean To Be So Rude?

Mmmmmmmm I quite like a nice nude colour nail polish - we could call it Mumsnet Magic Chicken grin

It's just a name of a nail polish, loads of them have stupid names

I love Essie polishes, it's a daft name that's all

The mumsnet range..

Naice ham pink
Pombear pink
Sweet corn yellow
Glittery Shit

It has a certain marketable ring to it I suppose grin

But I love Essie nail polish! I have so many, it's embarrassing.

Shudders. What a name

Cube of poo brown?

"Bridal collection" sounds pretty cringeworthy in the first place.

I like Nails Inc. Their colours are all places.
Porchester Place is a nice neutral.

Crisp you're speaking my language!

Magic Chicken is a special one, you put on one coat and it lasts for 6 months!

PyongyangKipperbang Wed 28-Dec-16 12:33:50

Penguin Bollard Black?

And the bridal collection would be named "Are You On Glue?"

SapphireStrange Wed 28-Dec-16 12:39:48

I CBA to try to work out what the feminist implications are of Hubby for Dessert, but it is a dreadful name whichever way you slice it. Long, difficult to say, boring...

I like Nails Inc's names too, although I'm still waiting for them to bring out Ridley Road Market and Clapton Pond. grin

Bridezilla Blue would be naice!
