No UV Needed just about says it all when it comes to the fluorescent glow of this Hot Pink Nail Gel from L.A.Girl. Just sitting in the bottle, it looks like a tiny work of art — and I’m sure it looks great on your nails as well!
What initially looks like a wheat paste ad for Wear a Mask perfume is actually a street art project from real-life perfume company D.S. & Durga. But is it really just an ad, or is it an artsy public service announcement? The burning question being: Is Wear a Mask eau de parfum a thing that exists? I can’t get a straight answer on that.
Spotted outside a boarded-up tapas restaurant, the ad copy describes the scent as embodying:
Notes of 70% reduction in transmission, peace lily, and caring about other people.
Popular D.S. & Durga scents include Burning Barbershop and Mississippi Medicine, so this could be real, but it almost doesn’t matter, because the message is clear. The brand has a brick-and-mortar store located in Greenwich Village, Manhattan (currently closed due to the pandemic), but their perfumes and other body products are also sold online, and through high-end retailers such as Nordstrom.
People will frequently ask me, “Gail Where Do You Find The Stuff That You Post for the Pink Thing Of The Day Column?” And I will tell them “I Find Them Everywhere!” Case in point: this Jeff Koons-esque mirrored Fuchsia Pink Perfume Bottle with Mickey Mouse Ears on its cap was found by me one rainy morning last week, peeking out from a box of toys that were perched atop the sealed trash bin in front of the Chickpad’s gate. A stroll through the Google tells me the that it is called Kiddy Girl — or sometimes My Way Kiddy Girl — Perfume. Yes, it is For Kids. Also, most of the bottles whose images I saw online have a logo printed on the bottle; so, how lucky was I to find one that is is such pristine, unmarked condition? So lucky, that is for sure.
