If the new Kardashian-OPI nail polish line is any indicator, the Kardashian name may not be worth what it once was. Though their first line did well enough to generate a round two, there's something missing from the seven new shades. The colors are, in order: Smile for the Glam-era, Back to Reality ... TV, One Big Happy Fame-ily, Our Fuschia's Lookin' Bright, Ladies in the Limelight, Paparazzi Don't Preach, and Strike a Pose. Compared to the initial line of polishes, which had lots of K puns and used the family members' names, this group veers away from identifying too strongly with the family, focusing instead on generic celebrity. Given that Old Navy has just launched an investigation into what exactly the Kardashian name is worth, this is an interesting development, indeed.
