Pure Ice Mother Monster vs. Material Girl

My last crackle of the week is the Pure Ice Mother Monster vs. Material Girl duo.  I absolutely love black and gold together and think that these two -- Strobelight black crackle and 582CP gold shimmer base -- really complement each other very well.  


I really appreciate Pure Ice's sense of humor with this crackle campaign.  This duo is inspired by the ridiculous drama stirred up by Madonna when she called Lady Gaga "reductive."  I don't typically consider myself a product of my generation, but I was never much of a Madonna fan (um, you're from Michigan, what's with the British accent??).  


Instead, I've always really appreciated what Lady Gaga stands for, even if I don't love all her songs and think she's a bit, well, gaga.  (Side point: Nory and her husband think that my speaking voice sounds like Lady Gaga when she's interviewed.  Maybe because we're both New Yorkers?)  Anyways, I respect Lady Gaga even more for not responding to Madonna's public railing.  


With that background, let's get to the mani:



I'm really digging this!  Sooo not me, I know, but the colors are truly gorgeous together.  I have been thinking that I might branch out into making polish jewelry soon as a stress relief and I definitely want to make this pattern into a bracelet or cocktail ring.  How awesome would that look?


Back to you girlies: love it or leave it?  And what do we think about the Lady Gaga and Madonna thing?  Whose side are we on??

  2. Considering I'm severely allergic to gold, polish jewelry with this color may be the closest way to wear gold without having to be hospitalized.

  4. Hey Amanda, I figured out how to add DISQUS to mobile templates. If you are using the widget install, go to your HTML (You might have to be using Blogg In Draft, I'm not sure.), find (Ctrl+F) Disqus for Blogname (or whatever you called the widget), and after locked='false', add mobile='yes'.

  5. You're right, such a great combo! I grew up loving Madonna but she's kind of boring and irrelevant now and must feel threatened by Gaga (who I think is crazy cool!) hence the animosity.

  9. I agree.  Madonna needs to move on and evolve in her own way.  I always hate when women stand in the way of each other; they should be paving the way for more opportunities, no tripping the younger generations up to make you look better.

  10. You'll have to find a good YouTube interview where she sounds like me so I can compare.
