Retro Inverted Nails

Get retro 40s glam with a reverse french manicure and be the talk of all your friends! We've chosen our beautiful Hidden Treasure as a base because it's sparkly and girly but still soft and subtle, and tipped off the ends with In Love, which is a deep plum purple. It creates a gorgeous art deco 40s style look that isn't just eye-catching but unique too. 

The look is really simple to do, just paint the nails all over with Hidden Treasure, don't worry too much if it's a bit wobbly at the tip because you're going to paint over it. Wait for Hidden Treasure to dry and then put In Love on the tips, painting gently with the nail brush. 

Just because we're so not over the whole Lana Del Rey look yet and it totally ties in with the vintage/retro 40s look, here's a shirt we're full on lusting over from Zara that we think would be perfect with these nails! What do you think? FashionistA HQ is right in the center of London so we might even swing by after work today to grab it - it's been on our minds all weekend! Don't you think it'd look fierce with this mani?

What do you think of the reverse manicure and the Zara shirt?
Love, FashionistA xo
