BFF Challenge: 80s Nails!

Today's theme is also chosen by Bec and today is 80s day! Being born at the end of the 80s, I don't really know a lot about it - so I went with general chaotic patterns in neon with black and white. I decided to do another mix and match set of patterns that I hope are 80s enough :) These photos do look a bit weird because the patterns are all skewed differently; I think they make everything look off-kilter, so my apologies.

I love these so much more than I thought I would! They're very bright and super fun and put a smile on my face. My pinkie is meant to be PacMan, while my ring and middle fingers are more random patterns. For my pointer, I did the neon Rubix cube from this image I found for inspiration. I wanted to add some stamping to my middle finger, but Boyfriend said to leave it as-is. I really like my pointer nail and my ring finger - the mini aqua french tip is my favorite part :)

Next week we'll be doing themes chosen by Kerrie - should be lots of fun :)

PS. These were tricky to photography because there's not top coat on my pointer and ring finger (I liked the matte lightning stamping and I wanted the texture of the black lines on my pointer to be more apparent) and the patterns are all over the place. I've been feeling really critical of my photographs lately :-/
