Weird New Street Drug Slang or Nail Polish Shade?

Is It Street Drug Slang or Nail Polish?

We all know nail polish is addictive, but why, exactly, do shade names so often sound like shady street drug slang? Seriously, it's near impossible to tell them apart, and to prove my point I've put together five names that either belong on a baggie of something illicit or in a bottle at Sephora. Can you tell which ones are harmless polishes, and which are illegal? Take the quiz to find out.

Hah. That's the best part of nail polish AND street drugs... it doesn't matter what they're named, because its all about the effect. Its interesting to think that I have over 30 nail polishes in my drawer right now, but I couldn't name a single shade.

We're kinda obsessed with Meow Meow. It sounds so deceptively innocent and adorable.

Very creative quiz idea! Although I'm not too savvy with street drug names- I thought "Meow Meow" and "Nexus" were a nail polish shades!
