Twinsie Tuesday: Vintage Beauty Ad

29 Jan

I perused vintage beauty ads on Google for a long time looking for something I could (and wanted to) do. I emailed myself several links to keep track of the ones I liked so I could go back later and make a decision. When I went back to look through my links, none of them worked. They either linked to Google images directly or to the wrong image all together. Sooo frustrating!
VintageMakeupAdAfter Googling different phrases and browsing through images for a good hour trying to find the one I had decided to do, I finally found it.

Pastels_and_pearls (7) WLcopyI only had silver micro beads, but I think this is a good interpretation on this ad. This was the first time I’ve done a caviar type mani. I was frustrated that there were some gaps that required me to shift the beads around or add one to fill in the holes. They kept falling off too. I really only kept this on long enough to get pictures taken. I don’t think I’m a fan of the micro beads.

Pastels_and_pearls (15) WLcopyThe polishes I used were OPI Pink Friday, OPI Swedish Nude (under the beads), Essie Borrowed and Blue, American Apparel Butter and OPI Do You Lilac It.  What do you think?  Did I represent this ad well?
