Hello lovelies! & happy Friday! & happy April 1st — I promise there are no April Fools Day jokes today.
Todays look is a fun one! It’s half inspired by the fact that 2000 style is now making a resurgence & half inspired by discovering the show Popular on YouTube, which I was obsessed with in Junior High.
I also found some frosty sheer shades during my last trip to Shoppers (on sale for $2.99!) that I very much reminded me of my teen nail polish collection.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Good. Kind. Pure Hardener
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Iris Illusion
- Essie Play Date
- Londontown Lakur Mint no Chip
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
- Essie Set in Sandstone
- NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush
Not going to lie, wearing these reminds me of my days going to Claire’s & picking up funky tattoo street necklaces, platform sneakers, & begging my parents for one of those inflatable chairs that were kind of see-through — which I did eventually get, although I think it bust a leak in the first week I had it.
This was a super easy look, & even though that Iris Illusion took 3 coats, & still isn’t opaque, I feel like that’s the whole point of this shade. I had tried it out over some white undies, & honestly it looked horrible. I much prefer this kind of naked, kind of not state that it gives you — it makes a great base for nail art!
What do you think about this nail art look? Are you feeling the 90s/2000s trends that are coming back?
I’m not sure how I feel about the returning fashion trends—I should have saved my old clothes—but I am excited about the return of flare jeans! Not that I ever stopped wearing them, but I’m happy to be on trend again!
Have a great Friday loves!
