You're Timeless to Me!

Hiya folks!  Second to last day of Neverland Nail Blogs Let's do the Time Warp Challenge, sponsored by Nail Polish Canada - so sad it's almost done - it's gone by in a flash!

Today's task was to create a mani inspired by something that was popular both then and now.  This was a hard one for me - I had such a difficult time deciding what to do and this was the only day I didn't have pre-planned.  After much deliberation and one failed attempt, I came up with Adidas or as it's sometimes known "all day I dream about sex." if you don't get that you've lived under a rock for far too long - kidding :)  I can remember desperately wanting a full Adidas tracksuit when I was in junior high school - I was a bit of a wannabe skater girl and all the cool kids where wearing tracksuits.  I did manage to convince my mom to get me a pair of Adidas sneakers, they were a dark blue suede skater shoe - oh, how I miss those shoes.....  I also remember trying to track down old school Adidas shirts at Value Village - one of my friends scored the coolest Adidas shirt and I borrowed it quite a bit!!  I totally think Adidas has stood the test of time, I know my Grandma bought faux Adidas bags for my aunts and uncles for Christmas when they were kids.  And Adidas is still around, I would love an Adidas bowling bag - I actually think I have a black and pink Adidas purse that is quite cute - I should go look for that.....

Oh, and this isn't the first time, I've done an Adidas mani, when I was in high school, I did the Adidas symbol in white on black on all of my nails - I used a toothpick instead  a brush and I can only imagine the quality of it.....
