Vintage manicure - quick pic

Just a quick picture of my vintage manicure - I was rather pleased with it.

Note the glamorous setting, on the No. 56 bus back to Hackney.



I didn't do this myself I admit, I had a manicure to spur me on to take better care of my nails.  They really do let me down, I'm just lazy!

That being said, I do manicure myself every now and then.  I'll be posting a full how-to, some polish recommendations and some vintage nail history in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out!

  2. At the Chapel - their nail girl is wonderful! I thought I'd treat myself to celebrate a fortnight of not smoking.

  3. Very nice, I still haven't got the hand of doing half moon manicures, they ALWAYS smudge.
    Jeni does perfect half moons, I'm very jealous of her nails!

  9. They look great. I've never seen this half moon manicure before. I get my nails manicured every few weeks, I am rubbish at doing them myself, so will look foward to your post! x
