Polish Days: Vintage Newspaper Print Collage


Hi!  It's another installment of Polish Days and this month's theme is Vintage.  I must admit, I had a lot of trouble coming up with a mani for this theme since I'm not really a fan of vintage.  I tend to steer towards more contemporary art, or more specifically, street art.  I think that's why I chose to do a vintage newspaper background for my nails and stamped flowers and leaves over top.  Here's a picture that inspired me:

I used OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons for the base, and then used Sinful Color's Sweet Nothing for my dots and stripes.  I used my bundle monster plates to stamp the flowers and leaves using Essence Into The Dark.  It didn't turn out as clean as I wanted it to, but overall I don't think I did too bad for my first stamping mani. :)

I'm still trying to grow out my middle finger after the big break so you can see that it's still a bit stubby.  Hopefullly in another week I'll be up and running full steam because I've got some great polishes to show you.   Stay tuned, and in the meantime, check out the other ladies Vintage themed manis for this month down below.  Thanks for stopping by!
