About This Quiz

Do you know how long people have been painting their nails? Since at least 3,000 BC. That's a whole heck of a lot of painted nails throughout history. Back then the colors could range from anything derived from simple vegetable dyes to much more intense stuff made from real gold and precious metals. They also made it out of eggs and wax so, you know, weird experience if you were a nail biter. But back then they probably just referred to them as "silver lacquer" or other descriptive if not very creative things. But the times they do change and in the modern world, if you want to set your nail polish apart from the crowd, you need a name that speaks to people.
