This week’s nails are another OPI color… “Animalistic” from the Muppet collection. I bought this color for 50% off because it was a discontinued color, and it was a great pick… I love it! A red that actually works for me because it’s kinda pink too.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day holiday! I spent this week in nostalgia. See, confession: I have a soft spot for teen soaps from the late ’90s. I call it the WB’s Millennium era, because the WB channel showed all sorts of teenage programming that I related to (or wanted to relate to) when I was in middle school in 1997. Buffy, Roswell, Grosse Pointe, Popular… they were all so amazing and I still rewatch Roswell once in a while because that show’s pilot is, in my opinion, absolutely flawless.
So I’ve been watching a lot of ’90s teen drama this past week. Some Roswell, the entirety of the satirical Grosse Pointe (which a lot of people don’t know about — it ran for only a season, but it was a harsh and hilarious behind-the-scenes show-within-a-show that parodied 90210 and totally worth the DVD boxset), the first few episodes of Dawson’s Creek… it’s been fun. And a little sad, knowing that these shows have been off the air for a decade. I feel a little old :)
Did you watch any of these shows? Walt makes fun of me for my poor taste. We like what we like…
