The 90's called...

Hey y'all! The 90's called...and they want their nails back! 

Okay, so I was listening to 90's hits all day yesterday. When I sat down to do my nails I thought, "What would The Fresh Prince do?" And voila! 

Here's what I used: 


I started with Zoya Anchor as always and then painted all of my nails with Orly White Tips. I grabbed a latex free makeup sponge from Target and cut it down to the size of my nail bed. I used Maybelline Bleached Neons in Lime Accent, Pink Punch, and Dayglow Teal along with Fresh Paint Passion Fruit in random dots all over the sponge to create the background for the stamp. It looked something like this before I sponged it onto my nail:


I went over each nail with that twice. In between passes I added more polish to the sponge. Once I had completed one whole hand, I topped all the nails with Seche Vite and moved onto the other hand. 

Now that my nails looked like a throwback to Lisa Frank, I decided to stamp over them with this image: 

I used Zoya Willa to stamp the image. Once my image was stamped onto all of my nails, I topped with Seche Vite again to seal everything. Here's another look at the final result! 

I absolutely adore how these turned out! What do you think of this look? What decade would you put on your nails?
