Happy Mani- Monday!! A Classic Red Nail!

Happy Mani Monday everyone!The Holidays are upon us. I wanted to highlight a classic look, the classic red nail. If you pay attention to the Holiday trends this year, you will pick up hints of vintage inspiration. What better way to be in trend this Holiday season than to sport the classic red nail.

Fun Fact: A clean polished nail has been in trend since the 1930’s. Prior to the 1930’s nails were tinted red with natural oils. The classic red nail polish was most popular when colored film hit the streets in the 1950’s. During this time women started to pay more attention to makeup trends and a red lip with red nails was all the rage until the 1960’s.

Below is an awesome vintage ad that I found online. I love this ad because it depicts the hottest beauty trend of the 1950’s beautifully, don’t you?

Happy Mani Monday! For the Love of Polka Dots!!

Hello everyone! I here to wish you a Happy Mani Monday from Pretty Bride Shop. today i was feeling a little silly. I don’t know about you but I LOVE me some polka dots. I have never really been all that great with nail art, so I thought I would step a little out side my comfort zone and try some fun an funky polka dot nails. I also kept in mind the trend of having your ring finger be a little different than the rest of your nails.

Here is what I used, I used a soft gray colored nail polish as a base, and then I took one of my all time favorite blues (from the MAC Wonder Woman Collection… sorry it is a limited color, but I know there are similar colors out there!)

 

I painted two coats of the soft gray first. I then took a paperclip and unfolded one end, you could probably use a toothpick or a bobby pin as well. Once the gray color was dry, I dipped the unfolded paper clip into the blue and softly dotted the blue over the nails. To make the heart I place two dots of the blue polish next to each other and then a third under and moved the blue polish around so that it looked like a heart. the hardest part of making the heart was making sure the heart was make the “V” part of the heart neatly. Have you ever tried to do your own nail art??? Leave a comment below, I would love to know your experience with nail art!
