So I am currently in a ranty mood and browsing Look Fantastic for some…erm…essential items.
So the OPI Hong Kong collection caught my eye. Hong Kong! Amazing City! Then I was looking at the names….
Gah. I’ll ignore the fact the collection looks like a mish mash of random colours that don’t remind me of Hong Kong (Vibrant, not Garish) but actually, I was just thinking how some of the names are naff.
Its the usual boring cringy sterotypical rubbish, a bit like when when a Soap introduces a Chinese character and the best they can offer is someone who sells bootleg DVDs and talks about “family honour” every ten minutes.
Hot & Spicy. Dim Sum Plum. Suzi (of course its Suzi) Says Feng Shui. Red My Fortune Cookie.
You wouldn’t have a collection called India and call it, Popadom Purple or Chicken Tikka Teal would you? No, because its stupid!
