70s Inspired Striped Nails

October 20, 2017

I posted a photo of Dev and I a few weeks ago and the number of 70s related comments we received was pretty funny. Although I wouldn’t disagree…it totally looks like a polaroid stolen from my parent’s old photo album. There was a vintage filter added to make it feel a little more retro, but our outfits definitely screamed Brady Bunch. I guess it just goes to show how fashion trends repeat themselves…

I absolutely love these striped, wide leg pants I grabbed from Forever 21 a little while ago (even if they give me mom bum…)!! It’s ironic that they were labelled ‘Contemporary Palazzo Pants’ despite having super retro vibes. Regardless, they’re incredibly comfortable and the burgundy, orange and yellow colours are quite fall-appropriate. I felt inspired and decided to create nails that matched!

 

I used a thin brush to paint stripes using off-white, burgundy, orange and yellow nail polish. They’re not the straightest lines, but I think it mimics how the lightweight material of my pants flow and I actually don’t mind a little imperfection. I also used a matte top coat to resemble the textured fabric.
