Vintage Inspired Nails

With the rampant trending and current obsession with nail art, I thought it might be beneficial to my style IQ to study up on the masters.  Naturally, I lean towards the vintage-inspired and couldn’t help but ogle the sublime way in which artists have mimicked Victorian lace, French toile, shabby chic florals, typewritten pages, Chanel wool, and even flow blue china all on our simple keratin.

I have much to learn, but a little darling health savings card came in the mail yesterday and nail art is beneficial to my health, right?  How could anyone argue…CVS nail section, here I come, armed with vintage fabric inspiration.

  1. Those are alllll awesome but I like the first picture the most.. wearing a scarf that resembles it I love vintage its my favorite style ;)

    • That’s mine too!! :) There was another photo that I wanted to include (but I didn’t want to be toooooo biased) that had that exact same rose pattern, but they also mixed in a pale pink stripe-y. Reminds me of Rachel Ashwell’s shabby chic linens, sigh. So cute. I want/need your scarf! ;)
