O.P.I-athon: What Does It Mean?

On Point Inc., Obviously Proven Intensity, Omnipotent Polish Indulgences, what does O.P.I. mean?? Does anybody know?  Well, I'll tell you what it doesn't stand for - Opulent Polish Innovations. You were thinking that one, weren't you? 

Odontorium Products Inc. Yes, that's what the acronym means. I'd have never guessed that one, myself. O.P.I. didn't start off as a nail polish company. Nope, O.P.I. got it's beginnings in the dental industry as a dental supply company, and didn't move over into nail polish until 1989. Their very first polish launch consisted of 30 colors, and had names like Pink#3. This was before color naming became their signature, obviously.  Their most popular color ever was I'm Not Really A Waitress, a beautiful vibrant red. I have a hard time with reds, as red is not one of my favorite colors (can you believe that?) I only own a handful of them. But, since this is the last polish in our O.P.I.-athon, I figured I needed to include just one red...or reddish polish. Thank Glogg Its Friday is a fuchsia/wine shimmer from the Fall 2014 Nordic Collection.  In case you're wondering, glogg is a European mulled wine beverage.  Yup, I had to look that one up. 

This concludes our look into the world of O.P.I. and a few of my favorite O.P.I. polishes.  If you enjoyed this mini series give me a comment. I might do another mini series for your favorite brand. Thanks for reading, and ...
Ciao for now.
