Hello again lovelies! I have another late night post for you guys. Which side note, thank you so much to everyone for the well wishes yesterday. I’m not sure what’s going on this week with me being so tired, but hopefully it’ll work itself out over the weekend. As long as I don’t get sick again, we’ll be good haha. But moving on! This is a blog about nails, I think? Today I’m tackling the 1940s for The Digit-al Dozen, so let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

I’m seriously loving this Digit-al Dozen theme. I mentioned earlier in the week that at first I was nervous of this theme, but this is a really fun one! This look was inspired by another pattern that I discovered on antiquefabrics.com. I highly recommend bookmarking this website for future nail art inspiration, because there are SO many different fabrics to look through! You’ll definitely be seeing this site linked to over and over again.

  1. Start by applying three coats of Over Sized Sweater.
  2. Then add a layer of Make A Spectacle over top.
  3. Once the base is dry, add on the print with acrylic paint and a detail brush. I found it easiest to paint the flowers on first, and then go back with the black shapes.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.

And there we have it! This is my second favorite look from this entire week! The contrast between the softer roses and the dark geometric shapes is so interesting to me, and something that I want to play with more in the future. Also, why haven’t I heard anyone talking about Make It Spectacle? I randomly found it at Sally’s and I’ve been obsessed! I’m sure there’s a ton of polishes out there that look like this, but the formula on this one is great. Anyways, make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts and let me know what you would have done for nails inspired by the 1940s!
