  30. Your polishes are lovely!
    The pink makes me think of the first light of dawn on shimmering snow, which would go well with the snow theme in your polishes, so I'm thinking along the lines of:
    Sunrise on Snow
    Snowfields at Dawn
    Dawn Snow
    Eos (Greek goddess of dawn)
    Lady of the Dawn

  33. The pink polish is so pretty! It makes me think of the candy that they sell in HoneyDukes in Harry Potter (Prisoner of Azkaban)... "shimmering pink squares of coconut ice"! So I'd name it something like Pink Shimmering Ice, or Pink Coconut Ice :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Okay so you like Japanese words for polish names...so I wanted something candy like and I found E-Ma Nodo Ame, Japananese pink candy...

    So yeah that'd be copyright infringement city though.

    I failed. :( Girls Generation had commercial for that candy too, so it was all screaming super poppy pink to me!

    Okay Poptastic Pink. There we go. That is my suggestion.
