So I looked it up. Katy Perry is 26. Which means she's plenty old enough to remember crackle polish the first time around. Who knows? Maybe she thought it was super-duper cool when she was 14 years old and she just really really wants it to come back in style?
Probably someone else came up with the collection of nail polishes that bears her name and paid her to put her name on it. Seems like that's how celebrity endorsement often works. And I understand that everything old is new again, but it just seems like it hasn't been that long since we saw the crackle polishes ... and they didn't stick around long then.
So far, despite my rantings here in the salon, it would seem that I may be the only person who even knows that Katy Perry has her name on a polish collection, but I'm waiting for someone to come in and tell me all about Katy's awesome new polishes. I know it's coming. And I'll have to roll my eyes and sigh really deeply and explain that it's already been done.
