A Quirk of Nail Polish Aficionados


Am I alone on this thought? It seems that many things relate in nail polish color, at least in my mind. I'll see a car driving down the road and I think "Oooh, that would be a pretty nail polish color" or "that car is the same color as China Glaze Camisole." Now that I have revealed this little mental quirk I have, I can continue by saying it isn't just limited to automotive paint. This thought has crossed my mind many a time...I've seen floor tile that would make stunning polish, related a flower to many polishes, seen patterns on neckties that really should be considered for a Konad plate. The list goes on and on, gemstones, colors in the sky, sunrises and sunsets, colored glass. I'm sure some of you may think this a bit odd, to say the least, but you true aficionados know what I'm talking about. Some days I really think there might be something wrong with me in thinking like this, but most days I just chalk it up to an imagination that's filled with a love of color and things that make me smile. A couple of weeks ago I used a Sinful polish (Coco Diamond, pictured above). When I went into the kitchen my first thought was "Hey, this matches my countertop!" Okay, maybe there is something wrong with me!

  1. You are not alone. When I see cars myself and my daughter when were together we say hey that makes a great nail polish or eyeshadow. I never thought about the other things you talked about but its a good thought in my opinion. Hey were not crazy we just have nail polish on our minds. (lol)

  2. I do that all the time, only I relate things to eye shadow. I'm always checking out bright colored cars.

  3. Have you seen the Marmoleum flooring? Beautiful colors/patterns. I have two bathrooms with it. If only they could make nail polish like that!

  4. Thanks for admitting I'm not the only crazy one, ladies! I checked out the Marmoleum website Judy, and you're right! I see some great colors for nail polish :)

  5. Well I'm not alone. I love color so much. I also look for it with eye shadow and lipstick. I just like to look at all the beautiful colors there are in the world. Frustrated artist maybe?

  6. I do this too! I love duo-chrome finishes on cars and was delighted to find nail polishes that really captured that auto-body finish.

    Beautiful colors and finishes mesmerize me sometimes, too......
