Today's challenge is...
Should have been born in...This challenge is supposed to inspire us to channel the year or decade which I wish I could have lived in. I chose...
There are so many reasons I should have lived in the 1950s. I don't even know where to start. I love the fashion, makeup, and femininity associated with the decade. I remember at one point, years ago, I took a quiz about what decade I should have lived in and mine said 1950s. 1950s fashion is known for its clean lines and emphasis on creating an hourglass figure with cinched waists, peplum, belts, a-line skirs, and straight pencil skirts (love it all). I tend to gravitate toward a more traditional classic style when it comes to my clothing, styling, and makeup so this is totally me.
I took my inspiration from the iconic Vogue cover that started off the decade (I actually have a couple original Vogue magazines<--LOVE) and the feminine silhouettes of the decade. Here is my attempt at 1950s inspired nails:
I adore this! I plan on painting my nails red, black, or navy (possibly with polka dots) and doing that stunning abstract face accent nail. LOVE. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I just wish I had a steadier hand:)
Polishes used: Zoya Purity, Revlon Delicious, SinfulColors Black on Black, and SinfulColors Ruby Ruby
What do you think? What decade would you have chosen?
