Last week we had the best delivery ever at work – a huge hamper full of retro sweets including candy necklaces, fizz whizzes, black jacks and lots of skulls and mice made from that fake white chocolate stuff. It was AMAZING.
Anyway, the many delights in our hamper included Fruit Salads a.k.a. the best sweets of my childhood:
There’s a pic in case you need reminding (which you shouldn’t – these things are like little rectangles of heaven).
Having sampled a few hundred of these at work last week, I felt it was only right to pay tribute to them in the best way I know possible.
Behold, fruit salad nails:
They’re a bit slapdash because at the time I was painting them I was also trying to do my make-up/brush my hair/do the washing up, but I love a bit of garish colour – here I’ve used OPI Nail Lacquer in Hot & Spicy and Feelin’ Hot-Hot-Hot (you see the theme here?)
Any suggestions for other colours that go well together?
