Forrest The Tiger - Lisa Frank inspired

Hey everyone, Happy Saturday!

I'm sure most of you are familiar with 

Am I showing my age by saying that I remember 
when Lisa Frank stickers first became popular? 
Um yeah,probably, but oh well, it is true.

When I was a kid sticker collecting was all the rage 
and if you had Lisa Frank, you were to be envied!
I even remember sticker Kiosk's in the mall,
that were loaded with Lisa Frank, 
and my dad would bring me every Sunday to pick out a few.
Ah, god times, good times.

Lisa Frank is still hugely popular today, and my 
10 yr. old daughter is now a big of a fan of her stuff as I used to be.

Alright, who am I kidding? I STILL am!
Though I don't collect stickers anymore, 
or walk around with Lisa Frank notebooks, 
whenever I see her merchandise in the store, I literally get giddy.

The illustrations are so girlie and I just ADORE the bright colors!

So here is my weekend mani, 
inspired by my daughter's address book, 
and I am just so in love with it! 




PRODUCTS USED:

Klean Color in - Lavenbaby
Sinful Colors in - Pink Forever
Klean Color in - Mango
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in - Mellow Yellow
Royal Crown brush SG 250 ( to blend colors )
Sally Girl in - #229 ( opalescent glitter )
L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Striper in - Black


I just love Lisa Frank so much, 
the colors and designs are so pretty 
and bring back such fond memories,  I feel like a kid again!
I may just end up doing a Lisa Frank nail series!

Have a great weekend!!
xoxo ~ Dolly

Dude, love Lisa Frank, love this mani even more! Did you sponge?

Thanks everyone, glad you like it!!
@ Freshie, while the polish was still wet, I just used a clean brush to blend in the edges of each color, but sponging will give you the same effect!

We would have been best friends when we were little!! I still have 3 stationary boxes full of stickers and all sorts of other stuff by lisa frank! I recently got married and when my husband and I were moving he saw them and was like "What in the world are these?" And I said "Dont you dare judge me or my sticker collection!" We laughed about it but I realized then that I will forever be a hardcore lisa frank fan, LOVE the videos. :)
