Totally 90's nail decals manicure

Hello, everyone!

Today I have this super fun manicure to show you. I loved the Spice Girls growing up (what 90s kid didn't?), and freaked when I saw these nail art decals from Emerging Thoughts and Sara M Lyons (Remember my Britney and Justin post?) I imagined the look in my head for a bit, and felt it would be cute to add the MTV and Yin Yang decals together for this look. Check out the pics below! 

The polish you see underneath the decals is Sinful Colors "Skylark". I feel like it looks much lighter in the bottle than it does on the nail, but that's ok. Decals work best over white nail polish, as suggested, but any light pastel shade will do. The stripes were done with some Sally Hansen striper polishes from their I Heart Nail Art line. I'm trying to get more comfortable with striper brushes, so I think basic stripes are a good place to start. I've been an artist my whole life (acrylic paint and drawing), but there's something about illustrating on nails that I'm still trying to work on...I'll get there! ;)

So, fellow 90s kids... what do you think? I always love how people pay tribute to what I feel was one of the best decades ever, and these "Totally 90s" decals definitely do that. I try to remember those good old days as much as possible, and I got so many compliments on this look. I hope you like it too!I'll have a new post up soon, once I get through this very busy work week I have ahead of me. Wish me luck!
