First let me give a big thank you to the RedLight PR team who thought to have vegan nail color brand Ginger + Liz set up a mini nailbar in the showroom. Not only did they have this fantastic pale blue color, but the polish dried as fast as the techs put it on. (Leave it to me to still ruin a few nails anyway. I am so bad with manicures *sigh*). Otherwise, I would not have dared taking pictures of rings on my fingers. Nail color. It's a beautiful thing.
Gummy bear jewelry by quirky accessories company Romeingpanda is feeding into the unusual nostalgia streak I'm experiencing today (see Peanuts, Mickey and Rainbow Goodness). Who would've thought to replicate a beloved iconic candy and put it on jewelry! Even in the pictures they look so authentically edible that I squeezed a few until I was told they weren't real. Good thing too. A sniff and lick were next. #nokidding
The gummy rings came in single or multifingered versions. I kept thinking of the three-fingered ring (above) as a gummy knuckle ring. It kind of looks like that, no? Imagine getting into an unfortunate situation where you have to give a gummy knockout. The person wakes up with gummies and angels twirling around his head, shakes it off, and becomes a whole new gummy good guy. It would be like your own version of the Care Bear Stare. Yeah, I'm totally getting carried away.
Romingpanda also managed to make gummy bears look chic. Don't believe me? Scroll down. You'll see gold or silver-toned gummy bears encased in a clear resin akin to fossilized amber. Perfect for those like me who wouldn't mind making a nostalgic statement, but a little more quietly.
