'Cutex' is 'nail polish'. Like "Xerox' or 'Jeep'...the brand name becomes so famous that you identify the product with it. In the world of ladice matters, 'Cutex' is one such.

Depending on your chapparness quotient, you are mostwelcome to take it a few steps lower by calling it 'tootex' or 'kyootess'.
