  • Give Your Nails a Pin-Up Makeover

    Your pin-up look isn’t complete without a classic 40’s inspired manicure. Deep reds, and half moons are the name of the game. Check out this easy-to-follow manicure photo tutorial to complete your look.

    Step 1) Purchase binder paper hole reinforcements such as: Avery Hole Reinforcements

    Can be purchased online at eBay for $2.84 with FREE shipping by clicking HERE

    Or at your local office supply store

    Step 2) Paint your nails any base color. Our favorites: gold, white, silver, black

    Allow nails to fully dry before proceeding to next step!

    (Neat trick to speed up drying process: run painted nails under cold water)

    Step 3) Place the Hole Reinforcement stickers over base of nails

    Step 4) Paint secondary color over the top of the sticker & top half of your nails. Our favorite secondary colors: red, navy, white, gold, black, pink

    Allow nails to fully dry! 

    Step 5) Remove stickers slowly, apply clear coat,  & enjoy your beautiful half moon vintage manicure!
