Polishspotting for beginners

Did I forget about Rugby Beauty? No, I didn't, but my computer forgot all about me. You never realize how much your computer means to you until it takes it's last gasping breath... Blogging on another computer feels like cheating. Did I tell you I am a geek at heart? Guess I don't have to.
When it comes to nailpolish, I am turning into an even bigger geek than I would ever had imagined:

Polishspotting

Ever found yourself spotting nailpolish in ads, trying to figure out what brands they are? Putting the dvd on pause whenever a nailpolish-bottle flashes by? Realizing you like the show/movie more if it's a polish-brand you recognize? Seeing Drusilla in old Buffy re-runs makes you want to redo her fantastic manicure?

I do it all. Reading the latest InStyle, I don't (just) get caught up in the makeup-pages but I find myself staring at an ad for a chewing gum, trying to figure out why the white polish looks like chewing-gum. Who would use that? And why would they use it as props in an ad?

Atleast Ikea appears to be using polish from this day and age. From the bottle-caps, it looks like native brand Depend. The other 3 brands? Haven't figured it out yet...but I guess I will

LOL, I love this concept. I even polishspot on blog pictures before I read the post and find out what polish it is. I guess its all part of the hobby *ahem* addiction. lol

Or, could the off-white be some sort of shimmer or lustre? I can't seem to make out what's the actual cap and what's in the background.

the bottles with the golden caps must be estée lauder! i think......

I never notice polishes in ads!

I do it too! I noticed that pic in the IKEA catalogue :) I deduced that the grey caps are Depend too. But haven't made out the shades thou.

Isn't it about time IKEA designs a nail-polish shelf?!
