Tiffany's Tasteful Talons remembers the King of Pop

Hello, everyone

For those of you who know me well, you know that Michael Jackson is one of my favorite artists. I had grown up hearing his music on the radio as a kid, but really fell in love with his tunes and dancing talents when the 30th anniversary concert aired on tv back in 2001. It's been four years since Michael passed away, and it still just doesn't seem real to me. I often times cannot wrap my head around the fact that he is gone. Maybe it's because whenever I hear his songs on the radio, come across his "short films" on tv, or even find some concert footage on YouTube, it's almost like he's still alive in a way. 

Last year, before I started blogging, I wanted to combine my love of nail polish and MJ by doing my nails in ways that were inspired by some of the biggest moments in his career. I did five different looks the week of his birthday last year, showing them to all of my friends on Facebook, revealing my fifth and final one on his birthday. I'm going to be doing it again this year, possibly making it a yearly tradition, and I'd love for you all to join in. If you follow Nicole over at Nail Polish Wars, you know that she brought together many people in the nail polish community on Instagram to paint their nails in a tribute to sweet Talia Joy. I was thinking that it would be cool to do tribute manis for Michael Jackson on the day of his birthday. I would love for anyone wanting to participate to come up with their own MJ mani and post it on Instagram with the hash tag "manisforMJ". I think we should do a mani incorporating a silver glitter bomb accent nail, representing the glove we all know so well! So, August 29th is MJ's birthday! Hope to see you then on Instagram! With all of the negativity surrounding MJ's personal life and family in the media right now, I think that if he were looking down and saw this, he'd be really happy :) Here's a look back at what I did last year (please remember I wasn't a blogger at the time I did these! Go easy on
