FYI These talons ARE the 70’s! Psychedelic.
Do these nails make you horny, Baby? Lol, Austin Powers quotes are far too underrated… Ahh, good times. I’ve noticed that I haven’t done any period themed talon looks, OTHER than Art Deco – so here it is. Referred to as one of the Golden Era’s; the 70’s was a time of decadence, opulence, OTT texture vs. print, lava lamps (of course), Shag everything! One another, fashion textiles, rugs, ceilings, car upholstery, flooring – so much shag you’d need a break every 20 minutes!
As I am too young to of existed during this time and am also A MASSIVE NERD. I gone done some research on this! So other than the gratuitous amounts nooky, fabric/textiles, design/technology advancements, etc – is a HUGE amount of people complaining about spilling Bong Water into Shag Carpets. Legit.
Ha, WTF? I repeat, Legit. This was a real problem in the 70’s. I suppose, if one was to partake in some Mary Jane – a good shag carpet would not only make for some riveting entertainment for a substantial period of time, but it would also provide bedding for the come down. But – Man – that’s a real hippie dilemma, does the risk out weigh the benefits? Like, whoa?!
Very funny, I do appreciate a time that created so much interesting innovation – whether or not it’s still in Vogue – Lava Lamps and a good shag are still present today; even if it’s in the peripheral. My parental units were way too
uncool practical to allow a Lava Lamp in our house, if they couldn’t trust us with a toaster – they were probably safe not allowing a DEATH TRAP Lava Lamp. We did have shag carpet in our house growing up and always dreamt of having a massive fire hazzard, like a lava lamp to keep me from sleeping. #ADHDRaptor #TooMuchSugar #AggressivelyAvoidingBed #PretendingINeedToPee #SorryParentsIAintSleepyYet #CanIWatchMurderSheWroteWithYou
Get that 70’s look – select your colour pallet carefully. I chose BRIGHT fuchsia, neon orange, and a mid-tone purple. Pinky and thumb are glossy fuchsia, feature is purple packed glitter (I used a loose glitter pack method), pointer and middle are orange base, with a layer of darker orange and then completed with a centre of red – just like a lava lamp! The darker orange was a mix of the red used for the centre of the blobs. Psychedelic, Man.
Loved this look – it made having stumpy nails feel… OK. I am still recovering though. Younger people didn’t get my excitement with this look, and the older peeps… I just think they were having
acid flashbacks to when they spilled ANYTHING onto that SUPER impractical carpet!
So what you think, Darling?
Share your experiences with the roaring 70’s… any catastrophic household messes, perhaps a small fire due to a HAZARDOUS lava lamp? Lol, awkward fashion faux-pas. Even better – Fancy Dress/Halloween Costume shenanigans?
