NOTD: As If! Dimepiece Crop Top Inspired

One of my all time favorite cult classic movies is Clueless– it’s one of those movies where I could watch over and over again while reciting the lines and giggling into a frenzy of silliness. . . I totally make references all the time in conversation with my close friends. In fact, we refer to my best friend as Clueliz which suits her perfectly because she is truly CLUELESS- but in a good way! But holey moley it’s hard to be believe its been 17 years since the movie first came out!! AS IF!

Nylon put together a great post featuring youtube vids of the top 5 best moments from Clueless. . .but I had to share a couple of my personal favorite quotes!

“He does dress better than I do, what would I bring to the relationship?” -Cher

“Sometimes you have to show a little skin. This reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex.” -Cher

“Why should I listen to you, anyway? You’re a virgin who can’t drive.” -Tai

“That was way harsh, Tai.” – Cher

 “ ’tis a far far better thing doing stuff for other people.” –Cher

“But it’s an ALIA!!!” -Cher

“Do you prefer “fashion victim” or “ensembly challenged”?” –Cher

“As if!” – Cher

“Whatever.” -Amber

HILARIOUS SCENE:

Tai: I could really use some sort of herbal refreshment.

Dionne: Oh, well we do lunch in ten minutes. We don’t have any tea, but we have Coke and stuff.

Tai: No shit. You guys got Coke here?

Dionne: Well, yeah.

Cher: Yeah, this is America.

So Dimepiece LA recently came out with this awesome rainbow gradient corp top as a homage to Clueless! Isnt it deliciously adorable?!

The colors and print of the crop top totally seemed perfect for a nail art design inspiration so here is what I came up with:

It was a perfect opportunity to finally use my Color Club Poptastic Collection set of polish- which I have to add that I randomly found at TJMaxx for only $9!

Here’s a couple pics I took of the bottles for a closer look at the colors in natural daylight. . . I didn’t have time to do an individual swatch of each color but Rebecca’s Likes Nails has perfectly applied beautiful and informative swatches of each color here. Out of all of the colors, I surprised myself in picking the Twiggie as my favorite. I am not a fan of green polish on me in general but Twiggie is a beautiful creme and unique shade of green that looks amazing on!

NOTD: Hello Summer w Floss Gloss

Helllllllllo Summer!! So summer has officially begun with some scorching temperatures over here and I wanted to do a hot summer nail design with some of my Floss Gloss polishes!!

So I started off with a hot neon gradient using Fast Lane– the neon orange color- and Con Limon over a white base. I then applied Stun on the sides to make a quick geometric effect completed with a Stun accent nail the look is done! The great thing about this gold glitter polish is that the formula is very glitterific and smooth! I only applied 2 coats on my accent nail. . . Look at this macro shot I took- can you just see all the amazing holo gold glitters packed in there?! It’s hard to believe that its only 2 coats but I kid you not!
