Inversed vintage mani!


Do you know which was the way to wear nail polish in the early 20th Century?
This is an ad from the Brand Cutex:

Last week my boyfriend came with a very cool idea! He suggested I could do a reverse of this type of vintage mani!
I began to imagine what color would do the best... Red? That might be too bloody. Black? Then I found which color would make it the more modern: Chrome!

Here is what I came with:

I used Stargazer 232 for the silver, and just base coat and topcoat! :)

The application of a chrome nail polish is very tricky, especially when you paint just parts of the nail: it makes a lot of brush strokes. I had a hard time trying to avoid the storkes but it was worth it!

I really like this look, I find it modern and classy :3

Did you like it? Let me know! :)

  4. Thank you Vibes ncnm :) Let me know the results if you try it! It might be easier with french guides than freehand if you plan to make it with a polish that shows brush strokes ;)
