Homage to the Hostess Cupcake
So, in lieu of recent events, I decided to do a Hostess themed mani.
I'm not really even a fan of Hostess products but I have to admit that I view them with some nostalgia Who doesn't? Yesterday, after hearing that the company was in trouble, I rushed out and bought some Sno Balls. Admittedly they were dry and didn't taste like a whole lot but they got me thinking.... What if I were to do a Hostess themed mani?
Hostess Cupcakes were the obvious choice, of course. Those frosting loops are pretty iconic and recognizable And cute. They're way cute.
I started with two coats of Essie Little Brown Dress. After letting it dry I drew the white frosting loops on with a Sharpie oil-based paint pen. I had to go over the lines twice to get them nice and opaque but it worked out nicely.
I grabbed a pack of Cupcakes from 7-11 to use as a photography prop. Then I ate my prop. They tasted a lot better than the Sno Balls.
So, what do you think? Are you lamenting the eminent demise of Hostess? Personally, I think this will all blow over but it's amusing to see everyone rushing out to buy up the last Twinkies.
