It’s quite comical how often I misread things. My brain must be wired in a weird way to make fun of everything.
There was an advertisement that said something like “IT’S A PARTY!”, and I initially read it as “IT’S A PANTY!” Haha, yeah, completely different meaning!
I had a similar brain fart when reading the OPI Magnetic Holiday Lacquers press release.
One of the magnetic nail polishes is called “Is That Silva?”. Know what I read it as? “Is That Saliva?” Haha! And even now that I know it’s Silva, I keep reading Saliva first.
C’mon, Brain. Work with me! Just because I don’t eat many walnuts doesn’t mean you have to hold a grudge and make me look stupid…
And every single time I see the word Polish (note the capital P), I read it as polish instead. (Once, I got terribly excited when I read a flyer on a bus shelter that began with “Polish”…but then kept reading and it was for Polish-language lessons…I’ve got 99 problems, but a lacquer ain’t one. Hehe! )
(I may not even be joking about being wired differently because one of my ex-boyfriends, who is a licensed massage therapist, found out something strange about me. Applying pressure to a certain part of the back creates tension or discomfort in the vast majority of people. But that spot on my back made me giggle because it was very ticklish! He had never come across anyone like that before in his career and concluded that I was ‘wired differently’.)
In other news…come see the press release and get a closer look at the new magnetic polishes from OPI!
P.S. This is the 2nd blog post for today. Check out the other one for a press release on cute mini nail polishes, again from OPI!
Official press release sent to me by OPI PR:
Lacquer with Magnetic Appeal!
OPI Launches Magnetic Holiday Lacquers
Inspired by Skyfall and the James Bond Legacy
OPI celebrates the 50th anniversary of James Bond with the release of three, new magnetic lacquers inspired by the upcoming film Skyfall – the first magnetized colors from OPI. The three hues, gunmetal gray, gold shimmer and rich burgundy, each come with its own unique, specially-designed magnetizer to create striped, diamond or wavy patterns, respectively.
“For the first time OPI is launching magnetized lacquers in honor of our exciting partnership with EON Productions,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Nail design is here to stay, and these limited-edition shades offer a fun, easy way to experiment with lacquer. There are no limits when it comes to having unique, eye-catching nails.”
The three Skyfall Magnetic Lacquer Packs include:
Is That Silva?
Don’t mistake this gunmetal gray for anything else.
A diagonally striped pattern appears with this lacquer.
Be spied in this elegant gold shimmer.
A diamond pattern forms over this shade.
You secretly desire this heart-throbbing burgundy.
This lacquer has a dreamy, wave-like pattern.
To use, prep nails like normal, followed by Base Coat and one layer of the magnetic lacquer. Then, apply a second coat of lacquer to the first nail; while still wet, position the finger onto the base of magnetizer placing it down. Press the top down so the magnet rests on the finger above the nail without touching the lacquer. Magnetize for about five seconds for the design to fully develop. Continue this process until all nails are painted and magnetized. Apply Top Coat once nails are dry.
As with all OPI nail lacquers, these magnetic shades inspired by Skyfall contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.
This limited edition promotion will be available beginning October 2012 at Professional Salons and spas, for $21.95 suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer pack, including the magnet.
Have you tried any magnetic nail polishes? (Believe it or not, I don’t own a single one yet!) Which of the 3 shades do you like the most? What do you think about the patterns?
