Frank-ly Eighties!




Step into my time machine. The year.... 1987. A young Liz is getting ready for school. She feels ready to learn! Why? Because of her AWESOME Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper!!!

:) Lisa Frank was (is) an artist that has decorated TONS of school supplies. In the eighties, it was essential to have Lisa Frank pencil cases, pencils, trapper keepers (a three ring binder) and anything else!

I really love how silly and fun this unicorn manicure is. The base is the GORGEOUS American Apparel brand color named Mount Royal. It was very opaque in one coat. I did two just out of habit.

The rainbow is neon. The pics don't show just how bright it is!

I know I commented on MUA earlier, but I cannot tell you how much this mani ROCKS!! Your attention to detail is awesome and it almost looks like Lisa Frank came out with her own line of nail-stickers lol!

Marry Me Liz! *sigh*
Every 11 year old girl in 1983 would have sold their little brother for this mani!
