Metric Jenn’s Top 10 OPI Nail Polish Names that Made Her Chuckle and Shake Her Head

Author: Metric Jenn

I don’t know about the rest of you, but half of my decision when I choose a nail polish colour at the manicurist is based upon the name on the bottom of that bottle. And one thing OPI does well is name their polishes in fun and clever ways. Although some names can be cringe-inducingly “punny”, I find most of them make me here is a list of some of my personal favourites to hopefully brighten your otherwise dull and listless (Get it? See what I did there??!) day:

1) So Many Clowns...So Little Time

2) I Juggle...Men

3) Sparrow Me the Drama

4) Be a Dahlia Won’t You? (Of course to be said in an old school 1930s Hollywood kind of voice.)

5) My Address is “Hollywood”

6) A Good Man-darin Is Hard to Find

7) A-Rose at Dawn...Broke by Noon (Story of my life!)

8) Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window

9) Teal the Cows Come Home

10) I’m Suzi & I’m a Chocoholic

And in a bonus spot:

11) Mauving to Manitoba:
 In honour of me actually moving back to my home province - How I’ve missed you, freezing winters.

All of these polishes can be bought online at Amazon, or you can also scout your local beauty salons. Be sure to check out OPI's website, though, as it is well done and has the same features as their app for your mobile device (trying on shades of colour while adjusting skin tone to match your own).

Any crazy polish names you'd like to share?


  1. #8 made me snort.

    I bet that's a fun job to have, naming nail polishes.

  2. I feel that it would be my dream job to come up with those ridiculous names. Hear that, OPI?? I would be a valuable asset to your team!!!

  3. I love stupid names! My favorite that I have is a green polish called "Leaf Him at the Altar", but these are even better.

  4. By far the most rockin polish on the planet!
