Yet again, the other half came up with the theme this month – I suspect he may know me better than I know myself. I’m one of those sorts that is instantly drawn to the broken, old and wonky things. We went to pick up a cupboard the other day that I’d bought on eBay and on top of driving three hours to pick it, we found that one of the legs fell off. I seem incapable of buying furniture that isn’t a bit off. So, how could you interpret the ‘vintage’ theme for polish. Maybe you’re one of those annoyingly lucky people who own some heavenly vintage polishes that you want to crack open (not literally) and make the rest of us jealous, or maybe you too have a soft spot for doilies. Perhaps you’re inspired by a particular decade or trend. As long as it’s got a connection to something old, it’ll fit into the theme.
The lovely Red Ambition (Issy) knew I wanted to try some water decals (my first ever!), and very kindly sent me some decals by Hello Darling. They are super easy to apply and they offer lots of cool designs. I put the decals over a base of piCture pOlish ‘Pink Shimmer’ followed by Ninja Polish ‘He Want to Jarred’ for a super girly finish.
It didn’t turn out quite like what was in my head, and seems far more bridal than I expected, but I quite like it nonetheless. I think I would have loved the finished look more if I’d used a second coat of pink for less visible nail line.
