Apparently the time has come for recessionista nail polish. Yes, it’s fire engine red and costs $8.00 US.  I don’t know a thing about it and I haven’t tried it.  I mean, seriously guys, why would anyone who makes Recessionista nail polish (Essie) want to get in touch with the person with trademark and copyright registrations using the term on the Internet &  in Social Media since 2008   I remember when a lot of people used to look at me and say, what does Recessionista mean? Now apparently, it’s a good name for a nail polish.  Go figure!

Naturally I think it should be about 50% of the retail price, or at least there should be some coupons available.  Seems a bit overpriced to my way of thinking.  What do you think readers?
