I did this manicure for the prompt of Back to School in a nail art challenge I’m following along with over on Instagram. Come by and see me sometime – park_or_perish is my handle.
Having dabbled in Cher Horowitz’s fashion sensibilities for much of the mid-90s, particularly on the first day of grade 13 – come on, all those little velveteen dresses and stacked Steve Madden loafers were AWESOME! – Back to School to me always means Back to Clueless, a place – or is it a state of mind? – I’m never actually particularly far from anyways. And what’s better than Cher’s yellow plaid outfit she chooses – or is it her computer that chooses? – to make her big entrance at school? Ooh, Snickers. 😉
Or would that actually be Clueless ON Dieting? Because this manicure represents Cher Horowitz’s confession to her best friend Dionne that stress has her indulging in a very heifer-like diet (as if!) of “two bowls of Special K, three pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, five Peanut Butter M&Ms and, like, three pieces of licorice.” Just missing the licorice, but then again, you can’t miss that which you don’t like in the first place, and I’ve never developed a taste for licorice. I’m down with the rest of that stuff, though, just maybe not at the same time. Maybe. I don’t know, bacon and PB M&M popcorn cereal bars *could* be a thing, right?
