Am I the only one who thinks of Claire's circa 2004 when I see cherries? That's what these nails remind me of. Can someone get me a time machine so I can go back to middle school and buy some Happy Bunny stickers and a butterfly chair? kthx.
Did you ever have braces? 🙋 I did. My appreciation for yellow and pink together began in 7th grade, when one of my friends walked into ballet class with pink and yellow braces. While I thank god most days I'm reminded that I did not have Instagram and Facebook when I was of middle school age, I'm sad that I don't have much documentation of my braces. Getting crazy colors on your braces was definitely a perk of the experience.... gateway drug to non-permanent body modification (like nail polish), maybe?
So now that you know the backstory behind my attraction to yellow and pink together, we can appreciate my nail art in these colors. Kara from @karanailedit made an adorable lemon design last summer with Cake and Tequila Sunrise, and I took the concept a slightly different direction with my own spin on the lemons.
I love stars. You probably noticed, since a good number of nail art posts I've made are <all> <about> <stars>. << Each one of those words is a link, btw >> . Awhile ago, I bought this variety pack of confetti and gems, and I finally got around to using it when I decided that new opalesque shade Moonstone would look bomb with translucent purple pink stars. Especially considering I'm not a "red white and blue" kind of girl (altho as I type this I'm wearing this shirt lol) but want to have July 4th themed nails, I love the idea of feminine starry nails.
The pink shift of Moonstone is really hard to capture in photos, but the stars give the polish something to reflect off of and you can really see that pearly pink shimmer! Happy July 4th! Will be repeating this design throughout the year with more colors. xx
