What is Nailstalgia, you ask? Well, it is the love of not brand-new nail polish. I guess you know the lovely nostalgic feeling of finding your old baby clothes? I get that feeling when I look at certain things that remind me of occasions or experiences I had and I cherish the memories of those events. Yes, yes, I know we’re still talking nail polish. Just like the clothes, sometimes we nail polish enthusiasts look back on collections or certain “famous” nail polishes and think, *sigh* what a lovely color, I was so glad I stood in line for this color in Paris in front of the Chanel store / I tramped to Las Vegas to the opening of the so-and-so boutique / that time I flew to Tokyo… (actually, I don’t think anyone ever said or thought that).
But, nonetheless, there are certain older polishes or collections, that are the little black dress of nail polish crazies. And these are the ones that Cait from Polish Hound and Erin from Paint Those Piggies! and I will bring to you every last Friday of the month. ARE YOU EXCITED?
Elephantastic Pink is part of the India Collection. As India is my number one choice of a country for hanging out, food and shopping as well as general other more reasonable holiday activities, I’m still trying to find all the polishes. Should you come by Royal Rajah Ruby and Black Cherry Chutney, think of me?
Clearly I had to work the nostalgic theme into my post, so I decided to show you a super old and picturesque barn and my remotely retro sunglasses. I’m also a little bit nostalgic about the t-shirt, because I used to wear it a lot and now I don’t anymore. Wow, you can really see I made an effort there!
I hadn’t worn Elephantastic Pink in so long, I decided to wear it for more than a day, so on day two I added some pink neon glitters from Claire’s on the tips. It’s a matte neon pink chunky glitter nail polish (not my description) by the name of Junk. It’s barely visible over Elephantastic Pink, but it blended in nicely and I sort of liked it.
