Suddenly You're Prettier

If you'll humor me for a bit, I'd like to show off some great, late 50's or early 60's style packaging design in the form of a Color 'n Tone 6 Week Hair Formula from Nestle (hmmmm, any relation to the company you're actually thinking of?) The brightly colored yellow and pink box is certainly eye catching, but the real clincher is that dandy die cut perspective portal with a lovely lady peering back at you from just inside-- she's even sporting the hair color yee be seekin'! That is one heckuva cool design touch. (And is it just me or does she kind of look like a young Shannon Doherty?) The instruction booklet inside is no less exciting, featuring a neat mix of pupil pounding pink headers, black and white photography, and even a groovy illustration! And take a look at the shapely glass bottle still holding all 2 ounces of unused, enriched formula! It's kind of turned into petrified Nestle caramel at this point... gray, gray go away!

If I ever "suddenly" became prettier that'd be a surprise to myself, everybody else, and the universe!

Will it make me prettier if I'm starting at zero?
Also, I`m reporting that buxom bottle to the Subliminal Seduction Police.

Yeah the hair color is great, but Shannon really needs to be out there flogging the eyeliner. Holy cow, those eyes are smokin'.

I really dig the yellow and pink combo on the packaging design--especially on that stacked bottle.

Man, I should've added an X rating to this post if I knew you guys were gonna act so intoxicated by that sensuous hottie of a bottle! Haha... I may need to curb your hedonistic appetites with something a little less appealing for our next post. And don't forget your barf bags... seriously
