What was your fave childhood cereal? If MJ’s King of Pops actually existed, this would be mine. Not for the taste, but for the amazing vintage cereal box design. My good friend Michael De Pippo was eating a bowl of Cap’n Crunch cereal while Michael Jackson’s Thriller came on– this inspired him to design and illustrate four cereal boxes based on MJ’s signature looks and music. My grayscale nails match MJ’s sunglasses! MJ’s Frosted Mini Thrills, also a must see. Oh, did I mention that Mikey’s retro muppet concert posters have already gone viral, been picked up by Disney and sold out? FOUND in Mikey’s ridiculously creative brain.
1. FIRST, two coats of OPI BLACK ONYX
2. THEN, free hand grayscale pattern with three colours. Start with a wide brush and dark colour, and work to the top with a thinner brush stroke and lighter colour: OPI SUZI SKIS IN THE PYRENEES SUEDE, REVLON HAZY, SALLY HANSEN WHITE TIPS
3. FINALLY, finish with SECHE VITE DRY FAST top coat
