80s Ladies Week: NARS Nail Polish in Arabesque is Truly Outrageous

The inspiration for today’s post? 80s cartoon-inspired doll Jem. Jem rocked sparkly pink like no other. That’s why she came to mind INSTANTLY when I first received my bottle of NARS nail polish in Arabesque.

NARS Nail Polish in Arabesque ($16) is gorge, flirty pink fun. It’s a sheer pink base with rounded, ruffle-cut pink glitter floating in it. It’s a bit too sheer for me to wear by itself, so I pair it with a more opaque pink, like Essie Mademoiselle.

Wouldn’t Jerrica wear this on a date with Rio (yes, you remember correctly. He did have purple hair.)?

    I love Jem and the Misfits. Every week, my mom would take me to Errols Video and let me rent Jem VHS tapes that I would watch over and over. And I used to listen to the casette tapes (the ones that came w/ the dolls) like they were real music. “Universal Appeal” and “Who Is He Kissing?” were my faves. But even as a kid, I thought it was pretty f’ed up that Rio was such a playa. That scoundrel was two-timing with the same woman. Jerrica shoulda called him on his BS.

    Welcome, Alice! OF COURSE you have to comment about Jem. There is so much to say about her. I love the fuchsia nail polish story. In fact, I’m wearing fuchsia nail polish right NOW – Essie Bermuda Shorts, look into it 🙂 Viva Italia!

    xo,
