A pal and I were admiring another friend’s pale pink nail polish at lunch the other day. The color? “Show Stopper.” Huh? What’s with that? The cosmetics company ran out of names? I can see Ballet Slippers, Future French (my fave), Seashell, Rose Blush, etc., etc., but “Show Stopper?” Sounds like it should be metallic lime green or fluorescent orange. (Not that there's anything WRONG with those hues; I say, if you want your nails to glow, go for it!)
Then again, I guess how many shades of pink are there anyway? And it IS better than calling it Number 237.
PS “Show Stopper” was so unmemorable that I purposely wrote the name on the back of a gas receipt when I got back into my car just so I could blog about it. And then, what the heck! I went to buy a bottle of it.
