Manicure Monday: Sally Hansen Halloween Nails.

Hey Nubians, 

By Halloween Nails, I Meant A Sweet Cameo By Michael Myers Himself! 

I wanted to give myself a 'Fall is approaching' manicure but didn't want to go straight for orange or hunter green which are usually my go-to colors. I decided to do a cool grey nail. I had the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color 'Show Steeler' nail polish which I had never used and it was just what I was looking for. Perfection. I love the color! It's a little something different. It dries very quickly which is a big perk for my clumsy butt and it has a pretty shine to it without needing a clear top coat. My nails feel so pretty. I'm very picky with nail polish but I highly recommend the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line. I've had good experiences with it. I despise when the color on my nails chips quickly and that doesn't happen with Insta-Dri.

Avengers Full House Sitcom Intro.

Hey Nubians, 

When you think back to Full House doesn't your heart melt a bit? 

Such a classic show with a touching story line that stole our hearts. Who can forget the intro song? Along with the visuals, it was like a
mini episode of how sweet the family was. The into song was 'Everywhere You Look' performed by Jesse Fredrick. 

YouTube user Zach decided to take the power of the Full House theme song and video and pass it along the Marvel Comics 'The Avengers'. I must admit, it was done quite well. He used movie clips and a few gag reels.

"Avengers: Full House," is arranged where Captain America is cast as Danny Tanner; Black Widow as D.J. Tanner; Bruce Banner as Stephanie Tanner; Iron Man as Uncle Jesse; Thor as Uncle Joey; and Hawkeye as Jesse's girlfriend Rebecca. Of course he had to cast Elizabeth Olsen, who played Scarlet Witch as Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen who played played Michelle Tanner. Well played Zach... well played.

Archie's Betty And Veronica Fashion.

Hey Nubians!

Rachel Antonoff has been dropping a lot of teasers on the new Betty and Veronica fashion collection she's been designing for Archie Comics. I think she's a fantastic pick for the designer.  Needless to say I'm utterly excited but a bit concerned at the same time about the collection. I'm only concerned because I'm a fan of the comics and of their style which has mainly always ranged from a 50s pinup girl to a 70s chick rocking bell-bottoms. . I read that Antonoff was also a fan of the comics at a young age so this puts my mind at ease a bit, I'm sure she'll honor the characters. There was always a lot of fun prints, sweaters, cardigans, varsity jackets, form fitting dresses, headbands, high-waisted skirts & jeans plus much, much more.

If you haven't read the comics before, this would be a good time to pick one up. Betty and Veronica are the best frenemies out there and might have one of the longest love triangles in history. They're always fighting for Archie's love which seems a little silly and perhaps doesn't send the best message to women BUT it does make for some fun comedy and a cool comicbook that many people love. Plus let's get real, girls fight over guys all the time, it's real life!

According to Racked, The Rachel Antonoff collection will launch this Fall online and it's going to be a full blown collection. By Spring, the collection will offer 80 pieces priced from $78 to $398 all inspired from the comics. They also mention the collection is meant to evoke what Betty and Veronica might wear in 2016... That sort of scares me a bit because I'm kind of obsessed with the trends they were rocking in the comics. Luckily a lot of those fashion trends are on their way back this Fall 2016 so it should all work out *fingers crossed*. 

Below see a mix of Rachel Antonoff clothing and vision board sneak peeks I pulled from her instagram and a few comic clips from Archie Comics Betty and Veronica themselves to serve your stylish soul.
