I call it nail polish.

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 12:32:27

do you?
surely only beautcians say "I must put some nail polish on my toes"

Ginger have you been reading Grazia? They're going to disappear up their own arses very soon.

Enamel and colour seem very pointless but surely polish is pretty normal?

BAN the phrase 'pop of colour' fgs.

Ban the fashion features which involve a D&G dress 'price on request'. Oh how accessible.

Stop having Lowri Turner spout her mouth off in the topical debates.

CEASE NOW all Brad/Jen/Angelina non-stories.

Btw my gran called it nail lacquer. So did I until my friends at school took the piss.
