Is it just me, or am I livin’ in a total ’90s beauty dream right now? I mean, not only am I taking massive beauty inspiration from the fearless Gwen Stefani – especially the bleached blonde, red lipped Tragic Kingdom era) – but an old ’90s favorite Sailor Moon has totally got me by my makeup brushes too!
For those of you that may not know, Sailor Moon was a short-lived animated TV show which centered around a clumsy 14-year-old girl who discovers that she has magical powers and works alongside her friends to fight the forces of evil. With adorable anime style and cute outfit changes (“Moon Prism Power”, anyone?), it’s easy to understand why you’d want to bite into moon goddess style, right?
For flawless, moon-goddess approved nails, check out my favorite beauty crushes below:
