It is day two of the Neverland Nail Blog's Time Warp Challenge. Today's challenge is called 'It's Vintage Darling' and we are to feature a look from the past. My inspiration is a look that was made popular in 1965 from a painting that came from 1930 and is still on trend today.
My nails are based on a dress by Yves Saint Laurent called the "Mondrian" Day Dress and it was on a cover of Vogue magazine. Ysl's inspiration is from a painting called Composition II in Red, Blue, Yellow.
The "Mondrian" look is everywhere, remember The Partridge Family's bus? Ever heard of color blocking? Are you on Pinterest and checking the nail looks there? Read nail blogs? I was really quite surprised to find so many things that have been inspired by a simple dress made in 1965.

This mani is probably one the most time consuming manis I have ever done, lining up all those little bits of striping tape requires quite a bit of patience, but once again this is something most anyone can do!
So what do you think? Looks pretty modern huh? Nope, It's Vintage Darling!
