A trip down memory lane

Hi Readers!  Happy Friday!  Today's mani is sort of a trip down memory lane for me.  The other day when I was out and about I saw an old black Chevelle that really reminded me of my first love--Dave Haas.  He was sort of the bad boy and I was definitely the goody goody two shoes girl but man that guy held my heart for a few years lol.  He had a few cars the years I knew him but the last one was this black Chevelle "muscle" car.  When I first saw someone sponge on a crackle polish the effect to me looked like the back seat of this car--those seats weren't in the best condition lol.  I decided to haul out my flocking and combine the sponged crackle with it to come up with trip down memory lane mani
It might be hard to see the flocking in the pics as my camera isn't too high tech lol but for a day only mani it was pretty cool.  Notice the pristine white of my goody two shoes angora sweater lol!
How cool is this??!!!  I have to save I love, love, LOVE sponging on crackle!  It's just so cool!
The little heart I glued on there lasted the whole day too!

Have you ever seen something out of the blue that makes you take that walk down memory lane Readers?  I did get a little smile out of this one I will say.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
