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?!
