It's National Thrift Shop Day! Song-Inspired Nail Art

Hey guys!  I have something completely ridiculous for you this evening because it's National Thrift Shop Day!

I'm sure you've all heard Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" by now, but in case you haven't:

(Warning:  Song features explicit language!)

And here is the nail art!  I know it's not quite up to my usual standard.  I was experiencing some pain from my lymphedema, so it was a slow and shaky process.

As far as products used goes, I mixed way too many colors to make creating a list feasible.  If you're curious about a specific color, feel free to ask and I'll try to remember what I mixed/used!

The text obviously consisted of lyrics from the song.  For the designs, I was inspired by images found in the video.

Grandpa's sweater for "I wear your Grandad's clothes, I look incredible"

The drab cream wall paint of the thrift shop for "I'm gonna pop some tags"

Wanz's snazzy pink and salmon suit for "Only got $20 in my pocket"

The Batman pajama design for "I rock that mothaf*cka"

Tiger stripes for the "what what what what" (or, as I spelled it, "wut wut wut wut" lol)

Ridiculous, tacky, and nothing matches...just like the items found in a thrift shop :-) .  

Products purchased by me.  I am not affiliated with Macklemore/Ryan Lewis/Wanz.
