shiny things aren't so pretty now

i noticed that a bottle of my nail polish lists 'guanine' as an ingredient & ,being as i am sick in the head, i made an immediate connection between the words 'guanine' & 'guano' & decided to look it up (isn't the internet just fabulous?). turns out guanine is derived from bat & bird shit & fish scales & is used by the cosmetics industry to add iridescence to things like lipstick, eye liner, etc.
at least i've never worn lipstick...
