Twinsie Tuesday - Vintage

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

The Twinsie challenge this week is to do a vintage manicure, we were to copy something from an old beauty photo.  I have to admit I was stumped for this one!  While I can appreciate vintage items, I'm not really into it, so I had no idea where to start.  Therefore, I went straight to google, lol!  I found a pic of this dress:


I thought this was a cute little dress and that I could come up with some sort of nail art with this design. Here's what I came up with:

Artificial Light
I started off with Orly Au Champagne.  I then added stripes using my Milani Nail Art pen in black.  I then used Sinful Colors Fire Red (for the belt) on a few nails.  For the dots, I used Beauty UK Aztec with my dotting tool. 

I didn't want to use red on every nail, so I just added dots between the lines for the ones that didn't have red to mix it up a bit.

Natural Light
I was kind of on the fence with this one.  I think it's a funky, artsy look, but it's not really me.  It also doesn't look very vintage, lol!  Oh well, it was worth a try.

I can't wait to see if my twinsies were more successful with their vintage manicures.  Go check them out!
