The Golden Girls were lightyears ahead of their time for 60-somethings making it work in the ’80s. From their own sexual liberation (“I paid with nature’s credit card”) to homemaking (“If this sauce were a person, I’d get naked and make love to it.”), marriage (“me in white, even I couldn’t keep a straight face”) and homosexuality (“You really haven’t grasped the concept of this “gay thing” yet, have you, Blanche?”) they covered it all.
Thirty-one years later, they’re commemorated in a form they’d proudly raise a forkful of cheesecake to: Nail art.
Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia grace these fingernails by NYC-based Instagrammer Cotton Polish in caricatured glory. They’re surrounded by palm trees in a golden Miami sunset, and the words “Stay Golden” on the thumbs.
