Sort of looks like a... Blue French Horn!

Hi y'all,

I've been working on this polish ever since I started on this WellNails project. Actually, first of I did a franken to try to come up with this royal blue colour. It didn't sit just right.

So I shelfed the idea. Until I finally came about just the right pigment to make this beautiful, blue colour - my favourite colour. Royal blue. Mmm...

So it's with great pride I present to you:

Sort of looks like a Smurf Penis

As you can see I've given it two names. When running this name through a couple of my friends, I got unsure about if the penis part would offend anyone and be the reason for not wanting to wear it. And some of my friends said that they would never buy a penis named polish.

So I decided to also name it Blue French Horn. Hey, if ManGlaze can get away with double naming their polishes - so can I!

Whatever you prefer, it is still the same polish: A royal blue jelly based one filled with holographic blue glitter. In these pictures I'm wearing two layers, and it pretty much covers with only a little VNL. Three coats would do the trick completely :)

It's inspired by the very first episode of How I Met Your Mother, where Ted meets Robin. They go to a restaurant for their first date, that has a blue french horn hanging on the wall for decoration.

When Robin mentiones it, Ted says: "Yeah, it sort of looks like a Smurf penis..."

Older Ted later tells his children: "Son, a piece of advice: When you go on a first date, your really don't want to say "Smurf penis", girls don't ordinarily like that."

Luckily, Robin is no ordinary girl. And the blue french horn becomes a theme many times later in the show.



  1. Ok, this sings to me on 2 levels. 1) I played French Horn for 7 yrs in school 2) I worked @ a camp where the staff had "camp" names. That summer I was addicted to blue razzberry Blow Pops. They wanted to name me "Smurf" b/ looked like I had been blowing Smurfs. Yeah, ummm, I went w Razz instead. Wait!! 3 levels! Blue is one of my favorite colors. I may have to male the indie plunge for this one. :):):)

  2. Oh, wow, this is absolutely gorgeous!!!
