Hot or Not: Nokia Nail Polish

Do You Want Your Nails to Match Your Nokia?

We’ve heard of matching our nails to our shoes, our clothes, even our handbags, but the latest in nail polish news has me scratching my head. In what I believe to be an unprecedented move, you can now buy a nail polish to match your phone. More specifically, you can buy a nail polish to match your Nokia phone as they are the “masterminds” behind this technology/cosmetology fusion.

The new nail polish line is designed to mimic the Nokia Lumia 900 phone. The name of the latest nail polish is - “Nokia Lumia Pink” - appropriate, but unoriginal. The hot pink shade is actually only available on a limited basis. Its reported availability is for one-day events in three cities only: Los Angeles, Dallas and Denver. However, those really into matching their pedicures to their phones can do so with the help of Nicki Minaj’s nail stylist at certain salons surrounding the events.

The phone is listed to be available in only four colors with hot pink being the latest. The first three colors are black, white and cyan. But it seems the only color of nail polish you can buy is the hot pink. Unless you’re crazy about the color and crazy about your phone, I don’t know if this gimmick is one that will actually work.

The idea of beauty and fashion in almost any realm intrigues me, but this latest collaboration might be pushing it. Marketing to women who are fashion forward and indirectly teaming up with one of the world’s most popular and outrageous stars Nicki MInaj is just the latest way that we’re seeing the beauty and fashion world expand. Personally, I think it’s a little silly, but who am I to decide? One person’s silly is another person’s fun.

What do you think of this new development? Polish my phone or Leave it alone?

It would have been cooler to create an app that instantly changes your nail color! Patent pending! This comment has been removed.
