In honor of this weekend's Oscars, Julep nail polish has decided to name some of its colors after Best Actress nominees, though they've slighted a few. Our sister site Racked National reports that "Julep has polishes named for Meryl (slate gray), Glenn (red), and Viola (dark purple), and even the gold Oscar statue himself (gold glitter, obvs), but fellow nominees Michelle Williams and Rooney Mara have been left out in the cold."
