The "Bae Is Coming Over" Starter Pack

Nothing To Disclose

Ah, just in time for your hump day needs.

If you've picked up on the starter pack/Rick Ross reference, congrats! You know this nail art look is about what else? Pineapples. ;)


For some reason I'm being drawn to items with pineapples on them. Not really sure why, but I've got a t-shirt and the phone case to prove it. And now I've got the nails.


You all know I love neon, so a base color of Color Club East Austin was a no-brainer. And because I love gold I had to emphasize the gold glitter on my iPhone with Ruby Wing Sunflower.

A little side note: Ruby Wing polishes change color depending on whether you're indoors or outdoors; but because I've had this polish for years, Sunflower no longer changes color & stays the bright, yellow gold you see in the mani.

China Glaze Papaya Punch | Dare To Ware Dewdrops | China Glaze Holly-Day | Dare To Wear Yellow Twist
Ruby Wing Sunflower | Dare To Wear Orange Blossom | China Glaze Running In Circles | Color Club East Austin

I hate mini nail polishes, but it was buy one full size Color Club, get a mini Color Club free at Beauty Plus Salon. I never turn down free nail polish, so that's exactly how I ended up with a mini East Austin.


Every now and then I share my mani sketches on my Instagram *cough* @DropOutNails *cough* and have been thinking about posting them here.

Let me know in the comments if you want to see more posted here on Nail A College Drop Out.

And for the sake of (somewhat) uniformity with every other blog post, here are some mani pics with my standard black backdrop.



This isn't the first time I've tackled pineapple nails. Dare I say, "I wasn't ready." Anyway, click HERE for the first pineapple mani I did a few years back.

Give yourself a pat on the back if you actually read this entire post and laughed at the Kevin Hart, Rick Ross, and starter pack meme references. You the real MVP. *insert MVP award emoji here*

Wanna see more of what's in my sketchbook on the blog? Wanna trade corny jokes about bae coming over? Or just chit chat about your hatred of mini sized nail polish? Let's talk it out in the comments.
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.

  12. This is so bright and fun and you did a great job on the pineapples. I read the entire post but have no idea what your references were too. But I miss a lot of things lately thanks to my kids. If it's not on Disney, radio Disney , or has to do with Mine craft I tend to miss it lately. I love that little paint pallet ring and would love to know where you got it if you don't mind sharing.
