I once read that people spend so much time and money on their clothes and face, and often forget about their nails. When you think about it, it’s so true; it’s something that you constantly see and is always on show. It’s a chance to show off your individuality, your character, and always makes you feel a little better, and a bit more put together. Well, at least it does for me. I love looking down and seeing a perfect little manicure. Especially when it’s one as pretty as this.
I don’t think it’s any secret that I absolutely love nail art, and trying out new styles. So, I thought it was only right for me to pay homage to one of the first manicures ever created. In the original look, created in the 1920’s, both the tip and natural crescent or ‘lunula’ (‘little moon’ in Latin) were left bare, or painted a lighter colour. Joan Crawford was one of the many actresses who promoted this look, and helped it to become such a big hit. It wasn’t until the 1930s that they began to paint the tip, leaving only the base bare.
