Sunday Funday – A Long Time Ago, We Used To Be Friends…

My fellow Marshmallows, of course you know what that line means but, for those of you not in the know, it’s the opening lyric to the theme song from one of the best television shows of all time, Veronica Mars. And when I say, “one of the best,” I’m not being facetious.

This extremely clever, finely crafted show about a modern day Nancy Drew, played marvelously by Kristen Bell, is one of the few shows I can watch over and over without ever tiring. And I do, every weekday, on SoapNet. I mourned the loss of VM after following it from UPN to The CW and gave up hope of ever knowing whether Veronica and sexy, brooding Logan would ever reconcile.

However, thanks to Kickstarter and the 91,000+ fans (myself included) who donated to fund the project, I’ll finally get my answers (I hope). Coming in 2014 is the Veronica Mars Movie.

They just wrapped shooting and shared a first look at the project last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. I’ve already watched it more times than I care to admit and I continue to tear up every time Kristen says, “Here’s your first look, Marshmallows!”

So, the guys, all wet and walking in slow-mo. The only thing that can make that better is if they break out in dance. Or if it’s a dream sequence and they go all Magic Mike on V.

So how many Marshmallows are also nail polish fanatics? Are you a fellow Kickstarter backer? Am I alone in wanting a Veronica Mars themed nail polish line?

    I would buy a VM-inspired nail polish line in a heartbeat! SO excited for this film. :)

  2. Cindy says:

    I LOVE Veronica Mars!! I would kill for a polish line based on the show/movie. Maybe you could make a “suggested lineup” of polish colors as a new blog entry? And poke the big polish-makers to see if we can get this going? It would definitely need a color like a creme white like a Marshmallow :)

    I backed the Kickstarter too, and I am so excited for the movie :) Marshmallows!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      The only thing I worry about with putting ideas out there, is that brands won’t use them because they don’t want to get sued.

  3. Au says:

    *___* I even own the DVDs, have been sooooooooo excited for this project~!!!!!!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      That’s one thing I don’t own but need to get. Adding to my Amazon wish list.

  4. Andrea says:

    OMG!! This totally made my week! Veronica Mars has always been one of my favorite shows. I cut my hair like Kristen Bell, and cried when I learned there would be no season 4. You’re definitely not alone in wanting a VM themed nail polish line, just imagine the cool names they would get!

  5. Heather says:

    When that Kickstarter went up I was ALL OVER IT. I adore Kristen Bell and Veronica is snarky and kickass and awesome. I can’t wait till we get to see the final product!

  6. Natascha says:

    I’m also a Marshmallow and nailpolish lover!!! I’m very excited for the movie and I so hope Veronica and Logan end up together. But I’m already glad we get a movie and multiple VM books!!!

  7. marchlion says:

    Hah. I’ve been lurking on here for YEARS but will de-cloak to say I am as excited about this as you are! And there *should* be a Veronica Mars line, although we can amuse ourselves and come up with existing colors (given new names). Hm. There should be an interesting green (not sure why, but there should!), and definitely a special shade called Backup.

  8. yay yay yay! I love that show!

  9. Sandra says:

    I am a huge Veronica Mars fan and cannot wait for the movie to come out. Any time I see green and pink together I think, classic first season. There definitely needs to be a nail polish line.

  10. Mindy says:

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on veronica mars. Regards

  11. Sarah says:

    Love it! I LOVED this show and can’t wait for the movie! I think a VM themed polish line would be so cool! Can’t wait for the movie!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Maybe I really should start a petition for a VM themed nail color. I bet if enough people signed, a brand might consider it.

  12. Kristin T says:

    You are so not alone! I was devastated when they cancelled the show and when they announced the kickstarter you know I donated right away! I literally had tears in my eyes when I watched the first look. I still can’t believe we are getting our Veronica Mars movie! It’s just so surreal! And the fact that the original cast is back is even better. I’ve been marathoning the series again too! It’s nice to see a marshmallow in the nail polish community! A Veronica Mars themed nail polish line would be amazing! I can totally see a green one having a “Neptune Pirate” named theme :)

  13. Raina says:

    AHH veronica mars *anything* sounds good to me :D

  14. katie h says:

    I too am so excited for this movie! I love this show so freakin much i swear ive seen all the seasons a million times..i even made my mom watch it and she, too, loved it. I wasnt a backer because im poor, but i did sign the petition when it first came out :)

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      I love that you made your mom watch it. I should hound mine to watch it too!

  15. Kelly Ann says:

    I miss this show. I only got to watch a couple of episodes and then poof, it was gone ?

  16. Carissa H. says:

    I’m a Marshmallow too! And a Kickstarter backer. I love that they’re making a movie but I just wish all these people had been around to keep it from getting canceled! (Yes I was an online petition signing, head honcho emailing VM fan back in the day!)
    I actually have wondered if a nail polish company might jump on board to release a polish line when the movie comes out. If somebody doesn’t its really a missed opportunity since the movie idea was so well received(and funded)! If they do I hope we see a polish inspired by “that” argyle shirt! I’m thinking a crelly polish with diamond shaped glitter.

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      I hear you Carissa! If only social media was as powerful as it is now, back then. We may have been able to see that fourth, flash forward, season with V heading to the FBI. And I love your argyle idea. So clever

  17. This post made me like you even more. I’m a backer & can’t wait to see the movie.

  18. Toya says:

    So. Effing. STOKED! Now you have me humming the theme song in my head :) Great news!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      I feel like I’ve been humming it every day, at some point, since the kickstarter launched.

  19. TamalaF says:

    I’ve never watched it before, but now I want to!!!

  20. Jacquelyn says:

    I loved veronica mars! I was excited to learn a movie was being planned, tho I waited too long to try to contribute and missed the tee shirt. I would love polish line if there were at least one I need. Here’s hoping:)

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      I’m waiting, patiently, for my tee to arrive. I don’t know when they will start shipping but I love the designs they came up with.

  21. Heather says:

    Yes! I agree this was a very well written show. Loved it and am so excited for the movie!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Absolutely! I would love to see Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell team up on something else, after the movie comes out. They clearly are a dynamic duo.

  22. MJ says:

    I am very stoked about VM movie! I jumped on Veronica Mars wagon pretty late (like, couple of years ago, thanks to netflix and loads of free time I had at the time), I think I finished the entire 3 seasons like in a week.

    And you’re not alone in VM themed nail polish. If no major brands would, I’m sure there would be indies – and I’m sure they’ll be sold out pretty quickly too. Because Marshmallows are awesome :)

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      There would definitely need a to be a shade called Marshmallows but I wonder if Essie has that trademarked for polish.

  23. Mary says:

    Thanks for posting this!! I was a fan of the show and had no idea they were trying to make a movie. So which company do you think would do the Veronica Mars nail polish line justice :-?

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      That’s a good question. I like what China Glaze did with Hunger Games even though they changed all the names. The colors were fab.

  24. Sasha says:

    I’m a backer too! Love love love VM and cannot wait to see the movie! The sneak peek was awesome! I would LOVE a Veronica Mars themed nail polish collection too!

  25. Becky says:

    I am SUPER excited about this movie! Right now my friends and I are just really concerned about the Veronica and Piz relationship because we’re obvi (like everyone I think) really wanting Logan and Veronica to be together forever. I would also definitely wear some VMars nail polish…what would Veronica’s color be? I’m thinking maybe like a mysterious green…Madison Sinclair would obviously be a bubblegummy, glittery pink.

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      That’s a concern of mine as well. I’m wondering why Piz is at their reunion since he clearly didn’t go to high school with them. My theory is that he’s still dating V and she brings him to the reunion. But let’s get real, the second she sees Logan, it’s going to be so ON!!

      I love your idea for a Veronica color. Obviously I would be ALL OVER a green

  26. Helen says:

    I’m a marshmallow who also loves nail polish. I always watch Veronica Mars on soap net!

  27. Jennifer says:

    soso excited! I’ve been watching the show over again to prepare :)

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      I really wish I could have donated to attend the premiere. That would be amazing!

  28. GirlieQ24 says:

    O to the MFG! I loved this show so much and I had not seen this until you posted. It has got me pumped for the movie, which I WILL see in the theatre, even if I have to go by myself. I love Logan, so I cannot wait to see what happens there. Kristen Bell is from Michigan and we love our hometown girl. I did not donate but likely would have if it had not reached the goal as quickly as it did. I would love some VMars nails!
