Decades - that doesn't necessarily mean past or present, right? Right. So let's skip a whole century from yesterday and see what's ahead of us, or our (grand)children. But at the same time, let's keep it positive, what with all the stuff that's going on in the world right now. Therefore I based this manicure on a feasible theory that brings hope to the entire planet: the theory that it is possible to have the entire world powered by renewable energy in 2090. All of us will have gone green!
I grew up in the 90's. My earliest fashion memories are from the early years of that particular decade, hence I chose it to be the theme of one of my manis for The Digit-al Dozen does Decades! I remember a lot of neon and triangles and loud shirts and track suits... Awful when you think about it now, but actually awesome for nail designs, so here we go!
Although the novella "Breakfast at Tiffany's" was set in the early 40's, the movie based on the novella, that established Audrey Hepburn as an eternal style icon, was set in the early 60's - at the time it was filmed. That's why I chose this as inspiration for my hommage to the 60's!
Another month, another prompt! This month, The Digit-al Dozen does Decades! And with my newly-acquired art deco pattern plate, the decision for the first manicure was made: The Roaring Twenties during which Art Deco first became popular. (And since 'roaring' means 'terrific', I had my alliterating blog title, whoohoo!) I decided to give it a little twist though, slightly straying from the traditional black-and-gold designs that immediately come to mind. I did incorporate the two aforementioned shades, but decided that my base should be different, just for the hell of it!
Today a bunch of us are wearing pink to celebrate Chrissy, the maker of Turtle Tootsy Polishes, being 5 years breast cancer free! I don't own any TTPs, but I've enjoyed looking at other peoples swatches a lot.
