Creating… Vintage Nails

Vintage rocks my world. Rockabilly – Retro – Classic – Funky. All a refreshing change from today’s styles. Thanks to Super Kawaii Mama, I discovered VINTAGE MANICURES. Go to her blog and see the vintage advertisements. A little pointy, a lot red – I love it!

Here is my version. I was going to leave them bare but the pointed shaping makes the nails look strange and talon like without polish!

I went with Sally Hansen’s Magical pink because it was fast drying and I was rushing before work! This is one of my favorite sparkly metallic polishes. It has 90% coverage on the first coat and dries super fast (under 3 minutes) but it does wear off fast too. Luckily, the iridescence is forgiving – tricking the play of reflected light to blend in the nicks.


I will definitely be repainting them with the white accents and bold red!
