My nail design specifically took it's inspiration from the German fashion house Escada which was started and directed by Margeret Ley during the 80s.
The Escada design that I used, is actually from an Escada jacket that I have collected. I have grabbed a few Escada things from Ebay during the last few years.
My family dubs this "The Christmas Tree" jacket. And I pretty much only wear it around Christmas. But the embroidery and rhinestones were just to hard to resist.
And the group of polishes that made this excessive look.

Oh, Those 80's
Other over the top inspirations
When Donald and Ivana ruled NYC society. This was Ivana's pre-Cougar days. But I always have liked her but always considered him a jerk.
The Carringtons of Dynasty. All that wealth, all the melodrama, and all those cat fights.
And if you wanted to dress to excess, Margeret Ley of Escada was the lady to turn to.
