Rather than devote space to super-ugly polish, I've created a new hashtag for Instagram!

Hi errrrybody! A few months ago I was cleaning up The Archives and ran across a bunch of stuff that gave me the shivers – in a bad way. One of those stuffs was OPI Pineapples Have Peelings Too!

I thought, Hmm.. maybe I should give it another try? So yeah. Did that. Same result. To me, it's still atrocious. But it's atrocious in a way that makes me put it back (carefully) into The Archives. Why? I have no idea. It's so fugly I can't help but look at it with awe.

OPI Pineapples Have Peelings Too!

I swatched it again as beautifully as I could, shot it, and put it up on my Manigeek Instagram for your opinions. And then I started laughing. It's so fun! Some of you love it and some of you hate it, but when it comes right down to it, your opinion is your opinion and I think it matters.

So, I'm thinking about making it a thing. I invite you to comment (either here or there) with your favourite fuglies. If I have them in my stash, I'll whip 'em out, paint 'em on, and Instagram with the new hashtag. Even better, you can post your own, add the # and tag me! But you gotta paint it on nice. You know, to give it a fighting chance. 

Now let's play #ArchiveAtrocities!

Oh! And, if you just gotta get your hands on a bottle of OPI Pineapples Have Peelings Too! has some and has it too.

See you on The Instagram, friends! (many thanks to @boldgold85 for the title suggestion!
