Polish Days: Vintage

This month's theme has been interesting, because I know that when I say "vintage", you mostly think of those old, washed off posters or pieces of paper,with ripped edges and an all round used look. And that's what I think of also. 
But since that is what most people probably think of, I once again decided to go against it. Yes, I'm doing it on purpose. Why should everyone's nails look the same? Where's the fun in that?
So I took a different approach to that vintage timeline and made it a combination of typical patterns and a bit of a pin-up look. As you might also notice thanks to my obligatory inclusion of the red lips and the mildly posed picture. What am I saying, it's full on poser.

I just figured the contrast would be quite nice and I'd like to think I was right. To complete the look, there should be a serious cat eye happening. Just saying.
But I've always wanted to play around with those big dots fading into smaller ones and this seemed like the perfect occasion.
I'd like to think women back then could have worn this design without anyone calling them different adjectives.

I have to say, I've really liked staring at this manicure because it has something very fascinating about it. Not because I did it, but the whole idea of it is very simple but looks complex.
And with those wise word being said, I'd like to leave you with the lovely ladies who are also taking part in this month's Polish Days.
