Have you ever seen the original 1939 movie, The Women? Norma Shearer plays a happily married woman whose life is suddenly turned upside down when she finds her husband is having an affair. He is the love of her life, and she is devastated. She finds out by hearing gossip while getting her nails done.


Her horrible cousin and lifetime frenemy finds out the dirty little secret and tells her to go see her manicurist and get this wonderful new color, Jungle Red.

By the end of the movie, and if you haven’t seen it – drop everything and watch it NOW, she takes control of her life by telling her delightful mom, “I’ve had two years to grow claws mother. Jungle red.”


My girls and I watch this fantastic escape a couple of times a year together, so for Christmas my oldest gave me “Jungle Red” by Nars! I finally got a moment to experience some Jungle Red for myself and just have to say what a joy it is to feel like Norma at the movie’s end!


Bless her, she told me that she had been trying to find this color for me for years and it sells out quickly, so she jumped on it this year and I lucked out! So here’s to a year of confidence-enhancing Jungle Red!
