Everything You Love From The '90s, On Your Nails

You know those moments when you're watching old reruns of My So-Called Life and Sister, Sister and you think to yourself, Wouldn't it be great if all of this amazing pop culture from my youth could be shrunk down and worn on my nails? Well, friends, your wish has been granted. Emerging Thoughts has apparently tapped into our dreams and given us the Totally '90s Nail Decals.
The pack contains 42 illustrations that can be stuck onto your tips for an instant time warp. And, we must say, the designer went pretty deep into pop-culture history for some of her inspiration. There's Will Smith's flat-top from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the bee girl from Blind Melon's "No Rain" music video, and Britney Spears in her "...Baby One More Time" heyday. Need some JTT? He's on your nails. You can even get Angela Chase in all of her angsty, run-your-hands-through-your-hair glory. There is no '90s stone left unturned when it comes to these decals.
Though some might find these illustrations cheesy, we could actually see ourselves wearing them — completely non-ironically. We probably wouldn't go all-out with the gems and rhinestones (which, sadly, are not included in the set), but slapping Winona Ryder on our nails doesn't seem as weird to us as it probably should. Unlike Crystal Pepsi, this is one trend we would totally try.
Emerging Thoughts Totally 90s Nail Decals, $11, available at Emerging Thoughts.
