It's Alright, 'Cause I'm Saved By The Bell

We are totally going through a bit of a 90's phase at the moment, it's amazing! To keep up with this nostalgic theme I've created a Saved By The Bell themed design for you today. 

I was in the mood for a bright mani and about thinking of what sort of pattern to create when it suddenly hit me where I've seen some brilliant patterns. The Saved By The Bell opening credits of course, so much clashing! There are an insane amount of patterns involved in the opening sequence (as with most 90's TV - remember Clarissa?!) so I had to pick just a few.

I thought I'd stick with one base colour, and mix and match the patterns on top, otherwise it was going to start turning into a bit of a mess! I mixed two purples together to get this shade as I discovered I only have lilac or very dark purple, but nothing in between (this needs to be addressed sharpish!). As well as patterns from the credits, I added in a letter B for the Bayside Tigers, in pink to suit the colour scheme. Bayside colours are actually red and white but I thought that might look a little odd. 

I was so pleased with this mani until I smudged the thumb during clean up, grrr! It was super fun to do though and would be perfect for a 90's themed party. I think next time I'll go all out with the colours and get some neon yellow in there (also on the polish wish list). 

I used to love SBTB so much, can't believe it's taken me so long to put it on my nails! I've got the theme tune well and truly stuck in my head now though. What was your favourite 90's TV show? 



  1. This is a really great idea! You've done an awesome job of it too!
