Polish Days - Vintage

Hi lovelies!

It's about time for a new Polish Days event! I was really looking forward to creating a manicure for today's vintage theme, because I already had a particular design in mind. Well, this first idea was rather poorly executed and didn't come out quite the way I had imagined. So I went with plan B. 
I don't know about you, but the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Vintage is that old flower pattern. My grandmother liked it, it was everywhere: pillow cases, curtains, even blouses and dishes. Most of the time there were roses involved, so of course these had to be part of my manicure. Another vintage design I adore are Polka Dots! Yes, polka dots are vintage as the pattern first came up in the 1850s ;) *nerd mode off* So my Vintage nail design for today are roses and polka dots.

I started out by painting my nails with two coats of Barry M in Blueberry Ice Cream - I just love these pastel colors for Spring. For the dots and the stripes I used the Essence Tip Painter and the flowers were done with acrylic paints from the craft store. The leaves were done with the Essence I Love Berlin tip painter in Grass Green. For a tutorial on how to easily paint roses, head over to Cutepolish's YouTube channel.
I wish I had chosen a dustier base color, but other than that I am pretty happy with my vintage design :D

Thanks for stopping by and please check out the other great vintage designs.
