Franken- Jersey Pink

Hi Kids!
How I miss the 1980's! Everything under the sun, except for percentage rates, was better back then. It was the decade of excess, and us Jersey girls knew how to do it right.
Jersey Girls have a special place in 1980's fashion and style history for having not only the *BIGGEST* permed hair in the country, but were also known for having super saturated pink lips and nails (complete with shoes and handbag to match)!

Being post punk/early goth, I did not sport the pink lips and nails back then...but... I did (and still do), have killer BIG, permed hair. So, as I listened to Gene Loves Jezebel, Voodoo Dollies on my way home from work last night, I got in the mood for pink nails- specifically the super saturated, warm pink of the 1980's.
The closest color I have to that in my stash, although a bit cool, is Diamond Cosmetics Wow. Instead of settling, I frankend a pink with (new in CVS) 10 Professional #415 Pinky Promise, Claire's Cosmic and Ruby Kisses Neon Yellow Bikini, and called it Jersey Pink.

I have plans on fauxnading this mani, but before that, I want to do a gradient, and will have to franken a couple of more colors.
Anyway, mani is 3 coats Jersey Girl- no top coat.
It's unfortunate that my camera wants to say this is coral...it really is a warm pink.

That's such a pretty pink. I have been feeling pink for some reason too! LOL! Those perfect 10 polishes are new at my CVS too!

Love that pink! My hair looked great during those years.  I loved my permed hair.  I wasn't real high but wider.  I didn't wear the pink lips, etc.  Brown lips was more my style.

Hot hot pink! I often crave these hot colors, I really didn't wear them in the eighties but I seem to love them now!

You know what? You are the type of lady I strive to be. Not that I want to look like you, or do the same things that you do (which hey, wouldn't be a bad thing!), but I admire your ability to be who you are as loud and strong as you can. The confidence, that is so, so impressive.

So thank you for sharing the part of you that you share with this blog. I feel pretty damn lucky to get to read you. :D
