Nokia Aims to Give Its Lumia Line a Little More Polish

While custom accessories are a common way to highlight a marquee cellphone, Nokia is perhaps the first manufacturer to pair one of its devices with a matching nail polish.

The phone maker has teamed up with Duality Cosmetics for a lacquer (shall we call it Finn-gernail polish? No? Okay.) that matches the pink Nokia Lumia 900. It plans to show off the limited-edition varnish during a national tour of the Lumia Lounge, which Nokia bills as a “pampering experience that will see the unique style of the handset brought to life with nail art designed by professional manicurist & personal nail stylist to the stars Kandi Banks.”

Silly us. We would have just been happy with a device that could be upgraded to Windows Phone 8.

Thanks to Mashable for bringing this important story to our attention.

Another gadget you don’t really need. Will not work once you get it home. New model out in 4 weeks. Battery life is too short to be of any use.
