Retro Nails: Tutorial

Recently my nail polish obsessed self is getting interested in more that just solid colors. What to do when I see two colors that look great together but can only choose one? I'm no professional so nail art is currently not an option. I did however see a nail tutorial ages ago on how to do a 1940's style manicure and have always wanted to try it. It's a different take on the french manicure, which I am not a fan of.  Instead of painting the tips, you are painting at the bottom of the nail bed. Here is how I did it:


  1. This is the second tutorial I've seen using these stickers, and I just love both of them! I'll have to get my hands on some of these... and then, get them on my hands, hehe. ;)

    1. There is so much you can do with these! I just grabbed some up at CVS, going to do some experimenting.

  2. Great tip! Thanks for posting!
    Keep in touch :)
