I grew up spending many a night in car lots with my parents on our way home from eating out. My dad loved wandering through the rows of cars, with no pressure from salesmen, to check out the latest releases. And even though he has to own a van for work, the man loves American muscle cars.

I guess it’s no surprise that my first serious boyfriend was also into muscle cars, specifically the Ford Mustang (he owned a ’87 Fastback). Thanks to him and my dad, I know way more about the car than I should. For that reason, I was excited to see what the OPI Mustang collaboration, celebrating the Mustang’s 50th Anniversary, would bring us.

Yellow nail polish. Such a polarizing shade. Why? Because, regardless of whether you love or hate it on your nails, if you’ve ever applied a yellow, you know the issues that plague the color family.

I don’t know any girl who has watched Clueless and not coveted Cher Horowitz’s closet and computerized “Dress Me” program. I know I still do. Clearly, Iggy Azalea is with me as her video for “Fancy” is a tribute to the classic 90s film.

One of the songs of the summer, I may or may not play “Fancy” on repeat when I’m working from home. And Iggy’s recreation of Cher’s famous yellow plaid skirt and jacket inspired me to try my hand at plaid nail art.

PC or MAC? Android or iPhone? In the world of pop, the big debate has always been Coke or Pepsi? Remember the taste wars of the 80s? For me, it’s always been Coke. And yes, this Ohio girl says “pop.”

I remember going to Atlanta for a work trip and geeking out over Coca-Cola paraphernalia. You should see the amount of Coke glassware, barware and signage in my house. It’s a “bit” much. So, you can imagine how excited I was to hear that OPI partnered with Coca-Cola on a nine piece nail polish collection, Coca-Cola by OPI, inspired by the brand’s lineup soft drinks.
