Vintage Inspired Trending Nail Design
Think nail art is something new? Think again.
These vintage-inspired nail art designs will get your style up to date, with a trip to the past.
- The 30s/40s Inspired Half Moon Nail
Let your inner Dita von Teese out with this red hot, vintage-inspired half moon shape. This style was popular in the 1930s & 1940s with Hollywood starlets and hasn’t yet lost its luster.
“And when I was researching style in the early part of my career, I looked very closely at the details of photographs of women of those decades and noticed that they would leave the moon of the nail bed bare; sometimes they would leave a sliver of white at the tip too”, Dita says of the half moon shape.
“So I showed the pictures to my mother, who has been a manicurist for 30 years, and she would patiently paint my nails in this style, sometimes experimenting with colors. All these years later the trend is finally catching on.”
We love her retro-inspired choices, especially when it comes to her nails.
