These were supposed to be just straight up Valentine’s Day roses, but when I finished this manicure, I realized I had created a pattern most reminiscent of those ungodly expensive Lilly Pulitzer dresses people shank each other over on eBay. I remember a year or two ago Lilly Pulitzer released a capsule collection with Target, and it sold out in stores and online within seconds. And everywhere across America, then-pointless line-ups of enraged, colourfully-attired women shrieked in fury. I jest because Lilly’s not my jam, and there’s not a thing on earth I want to purchase badly enough to take part in that kind of tomfoolery, but I’d be SO pissed if there was something I really wanted and instead it was nabbed in the first 10 seconds of store opening by some reseller who then turned around and jacked its price on eBay by 3000 percent. Not cool. But at least there’s always Lilly-inspired nail art – and a veritable bargain compared to the clothes!
