Digit-al Dozen Childhood: Fruit Stripe Gum - Day 2

Products previously
Sent for Review

Hi everyone - it's Digit-al Dozen week again! This theme is "Childhood" - well I don't know about YOU GUYS but that was a really looooong time ago for me. But I do have a few memories LOL!

Day 2 is Fruit Stripe Gum. I loved every single thing about this except that the flavor didn't last long enough. I loved the flavor, the smell! I can't smell it to this day without being instantly transported back to age 6. You know, that magical age where you can still get away with shoving all the pieces in your mouth at the same time without TOO much flack from Mom? Yeah.

For this mani, I used Elevation Polish Cuernos del Paine and Mount McKinley and Nails Inc. Warwick Avenue and Sumner Place as the bases with acrylic paints for the rest. Not thrilled with how this one turned out but LOVED the gum.

Check out the other great manis for Childhood from the rest of the Digit-al Dozen gang in the links below and check back every day this week for more!

If you enjoyed this post, please take a second to "like" it! Thanks!



  1. I love this mani and I loved the gum too! Now I want some. Dang, do they even still make it??

  2. We didn't have that gum up in Canada. At least I don't remember it. Now I wish we did. I loved much that I almost refused to spit it in the garbage at dinnertime.

  3. I don't think we had that gum in Sweden but we had other sweets looking similar :) Really nice manicure that made me want candy!

  4. I LOVED Fruit Stripe gum! I recently bought a pack of it and wondered why I loved it so much! The flavor last all of 10 seconds. You design looks exactly like the gum!

  5. I LOVE this! I loved that gum...and you really recreated it well!

  6. I remember that gum! Oh, the good olé days!!

  7. OMG yes!! That gum was the greatest! It lost its flavor like instantly but my sister and I would make bracelets out of the wrappers!!

  8. oh. my. gosh. I haven't thought about fruit strip gum in forever!!

    1. I meant to colors looked like that of the gum. :)

  10. i really love the simplicity of these - i can almost taste them!

  11. This looks like fruity bacon, but I'm sur it's just because I don't know the gum! But babe, this is the best looking fruity bacon ever!

  12. We didn't have this gum in Indonesia, but by the look of your manicure I can tell that this gum is really adorable!
