Pimp My Ride and My Nails

RARE vintage Beauty News...

So I was walking down the street one day and I saw this

and I thought: I would love to wear that exact color on my nails!  So I walked into the Mercedes-Benz dealership on Park Avenue and asked if they sold nail polish?  They looked at me like I was crazy and had security escort me out.  

But I could not stop obsessing over that color.  I called the Mercedes-Benz headquarters in Stuttgart and I asked, "Habt ihr nagellack?"  and they said, "Nein!"  And I heard klicken (click).   

I persevered and managed to get on the phone with Stephen Cannon, CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA by pretending to be the newest and first female host of Top Gear (I do a crazy good English accent.  Very posh.)   Before he could hang up I blurted out my whole idea.  And this is what happened:

Mercedes-Benz nail polish in Red Zircon - an original vehicle paint color.  There is also Silver Brocade and Metallic Blue.  You're welcome Mercedes-Benz!**

**Above story was a dramatization.  None of which actually occurred.  But that is a real polish and is a perfect red for this Prada shoe don't you think?!
