The Beauty Buffs: Lisa Frank Inspired

Recently I was invited to join a group called The Beauty Buffs, who do monthly blog posts. I'm really excited to be among their ranks and my first post with them is all about Lisa Frank. If you grew up in the early 90's you'll remember the days of Lisa Frank and Trapper Keepers. If you didn't or don't know what I'm talking about, get your butt to Google now! Those neon kittens/penguins/leopards/unicorns/etc were my jam in elementary school. 

For my look, I created quite the mish mash look for you, but I love the way it looks. I'll list all products used at the end of the post. My base is silver holographic foil which I stamped the looks over! 




Products used:
Thumb: Mundo de Unas Reddish, Uber Chic 1-03
Pointer: Konad Black, W101 (leopard print stamp), China Glaze TMI (pink), China Glaze Plur-ple, Floss Gloss Wet
Middle: Mundo de Unas Mexican Pink, Konad Black, BM307 (butterfly stamp), China Glaze I Herd That (glitter)
Ring: Konad Black, BM223 (tiger print stamp)
Pinky: Mundo de Unas Turquoise, pink circle studs, BM16 (flower stamp)
Base for everything is Ciate Holographic Silver foil with Dance Legend Glitter Off

Could these be more Lisa Frank in your face obnoxious, the answer is yes. But I really love the way this mish mash all comes together. Be sure to check out all the other ladies who did looks inspired by Lisa Frank!

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. I'm sure mine got chucked years and years ago. I can't imagine what treasures would be in there if we still had it.

    1. I was a pretty big tomboy too. Lisa Frank stuff was the one concession I made to girlishness for a long time.
