Sonnet on Revlon Teak Rose
« on: October 24, 2010, 03:39:46 PM »
Shall I compare thee to a rose-hued day?
Thou art more shiny and more delicate.
Rough hands do chip my glossy rose-toned tips,
And top coat's layer hath all too short a stay.
Sometimes too fast the product line may change,
And often is my pink complexion trounced;
And every product from brand sometimes may range,
By chance or Marketing's changing research bounced;
But thy eternal beauty shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that gloss thou ow'st;
Nor shall break the perfect ten thou hath made;
When in eternal lines to wait thou grow'st:
So long as women breathe and nails do click,
So endure varnish, and thus bring joy to me.

I was admiring the fact that my manicure lasted a full week with no top coat! I decided to add a third layer and see how many more days I could get out of it. It was then I started thinking, "Teak Rose, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways."

From there, it just took off. :lol:

There is nothing wrong with you. Not one single thing. Any fault lies with the fashion/cosmetic/marketing industry that has trained you with false proof to believe that you’re not perfect.
