Need a Hanukkah/Christmas/bridal shower/birthday/just because gift? Pretty Please is a new site that lets you name custom nail polish colors, which means you can get one step closer to your dream of out-OPI-ing OPI and their clever polish names. It's clear that the company is cool with whimsy, considering their founder's official title is Chief Polish Officer.
Right now, Pretty Please offers 18 shades of lacquer, from nude to neon yellow to silver glitter. You can order single bottles for $10 a pop, but there doesn't appear to be a discount for buying in bulk - yet. As for the names? Keep it to 24 characters or less, and no swearing. One final note: if you want to order polishes for Christmas, today's your last chance to make sure it ships in time. So get on it! We're considering choosing #4 and naming it Racked Red.
