Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects Nail Strips were the smash nail hit of 2011, causing other brands to play catch up and to come up with their own nail stickers. Vivi’s done it. Opi’s done it. Hell, ebay caters to hundreds of different Asian sellers that do it, and do it far cheaper by the way. Everybody’s done it, but how exactly does the original stack up? Has their first attempt managed to keep up?
So, you say Marijuana decals aren’t your mani style. We here at PD understand completely. Truth be told all of our contributors were surveyed and none have actually gone for the whole Nacro-Patron-Saint-thing; of course, no one on our staff plans to party in Cabo with the Zeta’s either (your political fashion choices are sometimes based on necessity).
While summer cobalts and neon pinks don’t suit everyone, a red manicure is a go-to staple that fits every skin type, hair color, personality, and time of year. Blood red in fall, cheery Santa in December, Valentine crush in February, Candy-Apple in Spring, and Hot Hot Hot in summer, red nails always come across as current and yet classic.
Everyone knows that Mexico doesn’t have a problem with drug cartels. Any violence south of the U.S. border, any ice chests stuffed with reporters’ heads, forests of rape trees, sheriffs’ body parts, any of that blood gang jazz is just an odd coinkydink, not at all related with a slightly corrupt government kowtowing to the gods of drug trade.
There’s no correlation there whatsoever. What? Are you one of those Ron Paul bumper sticker stickin’ right wingers that believe in a secured border? Pleeease. That’s so moronic.
Since we’ve established that there really isn’t any type of drug trafficking turf war going on in Mexico, because you know, there definitely isn’t, PD wants to give you some inspiration for your next mani, just in time for that summer fiesta in Cabo.
