Guys, where did Snooki go? Where’s the animal print? Where’s the poof? Where’s the tan—OH WAIT. Nope. That’s still there. Wheeeeew, we were gettin’ scared for a second because when we peeped the Jersey Shore girl last month, she was also looking super unlike herself in a sophisticated sheer blouse (with a wineglass!). And yesterday when Snooks was promoting her tanning lotion line, she dressed down and STILL managed to nail her beauty game. She pulled her brown, crimson-streaked locks into a messy, side-parted pony, which complemented her off-the-shoulder tee perfectly. She even added a flower clip for a classic Hawaiian girl look. She kept her eye makeup minimal (well, minus those mile-long lashes), and, dudes, did you peep her nails?! THEY ARE SHORT. AND THEY ARE ALL ONE SOLID COLOR. *gasp* There’s no glitter/rhinestones/zebra print/bows on long square tips like she normally wears. And it’s not like we’re anti-nail art or anything, but we’re starting to see our bbgurl’s style evolving. She’s growing up. :’)

But before we get all mom proud on her, we HAVE to discuss the tattoo she received only a day before! Adding to her crown tattoo from last fall, Snooki decided to decorate her other shoulder with some red and black (tiger striped?!) shooting stars. We have to give her SOME props because not only did she match her new tat to her earrings, but she also wore a corset while getting her ink done. YEAH. A CORSET. *slow clap*
