PMS? You Bet, and the Polish Proves It, Buster

April 18, 1999|BOOTH MOORE

It's not enough these days for makeup to be cherry cola-flavored or bubble gum-scented. Now there's a nail polish that claims to change color according to your, um, time of month. It's called P.M.S.--Polish Mood Shades.

The polishes (actually heat-activated) come in several color-changing shades. Bloated Blue changes to Pouty Pink, Tantrum Tangerine transforms into Manhating Melon and Vexed Violet becomes Self-Centered Silver.

The creator of the product, Jenai Lane, explains it like this: "I was disturbed by the fact that women are always being accused of PMSing, so I decided to take the negative names that women are often called and give them positive meanings."

It seems to have worked. Fans reportedly include Jennifer Aniston, Madonna, Drew Barrymore and Sandra Bullock. And to those women who might not want their private business advertised for the world to see, look at the bright side: When your co-workers, husband or friends see your fingers are Bloated Blue, they will know (without asking) to back off.
