Polish Days- Vintage- Flapper Style

So, this month's theme for Polish Days is Vintage. Fab. Sadly, I'm not one of those people who own a gorgeous Vintage polish so I had to go with a Vintage theme.

I have a couple of time periods that I adore items from but for this one, I wanted to try something that had elements of things I hadn't tried before. Which is why I went with a 1920's Flapper style.

My design was loosely based on this dress.


So, onto the mani.

In my head, this was amazing, in practice, it didn't quite get to my expectation level, but I still like how different it is.

The thumb was the face, the index finger was the feather on the headband, the middle finger was the pearl necklace, ring finger was the tassel skirt and the pinkie was the fishnet stockings.

This image was to show a better shot of the thumb.

  1. That mani is swinging!!!! It's a very creative translation of the inspiration.
