Like, Ok. So, this is like a totally tubular 1980s manicure. I mean, like, it’s so gnarly and awesome to the max!
Can I just share with you all that I actually had a dictionary of how to talk like a Valley Girl when I was in the 4th or 5th grade??? I loved that book and even had my BFF studying it and then I promise you all that it took forever for me to stop saying “like” at least a million times a day! LOL
This past weekend my husband and I attended an 80s themed birthday party for a good friend. I had so much fun and didn’t realize how much fun house parties can be. Totally different but being a teenager vs. being a 40-year-old mom, but I still kicked it old school. I found this cute dress at H&M for $12, I won the angel wing necklace and got the jelly bracelets and neon earrings at Five and Below (store closing 75% off).
Clearly I was really feeling myself so please excuse the “I’m sexy and I know it” face. O_o The only thing missing from my ensemble was a pair of jelly shoes. LOL
Now on to the nails! My new favorite top coat is Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri anit-chip topcoat. It dries my nails really fast, it’s affordable and I can actually go more than 2 days before my nails chip. I used OPI white polish in “Alpine Snow”, Orly’s “Passion Fruit”, Art Club’s “Sunny” and NYC in “Black Lace”.
For my accent nail I used the paint spatter technique. I painted the accent nail base color in the white then I dipped the straw in the remaining colors individually and blew the paint onto my nail. Before I started this process I applied a thick coat of Vaseline all around the nail bed. It made clean up so much easier and all I did was just use tissues to wipe the excess paint and Vaseline off my nail.
Here’s a picture from the evening that best describes how much fun we had. I’m thinking at this point my husband was 3 sheets to the wind! HAHA But I can honestly say we had a great time and I’m thinking I may need to have a house party soon.
For all of my “older” readers, what are some of your favorite memories from the 80s? I know that I was in love with Prince, Madonna and New Edition! I even recall listening to my records and being excited when I got my own boombox to listen to tapes. And what about a home phone with no call waiting and the operator buzzing in with an “important call”. *sigh* Good memories!
