Polish Days: Vintage




The theme for this month's Polish Days is "Vintage" - and what's more vintage than grandma's house! I guess every grandma is different, but my dad's mom lives in a country farmhouse that is chock-full of stuff straight out of 1952 (and older). She used to have a beige-ish quilt with pink roses on it, and that's what I used as my inspiration today!





I gave it a matte finish... because it looks more vintage?






I also tried a glossy top coat just for laughs.


Colors used:
Base - OPI Did You Hear About Van Gough?
Pink - Spoiled My Silicone Popped
Peach - China Glaze Peachy Keen
Light Pink - Spoiled My Button Fell Off
Green - China Glaze Starboard

Te gusta? I'm actually really happy with how they turned out!! If you're liking what you're seeing feel free to comment and/or follow me! All of my links are at the top right of the page.
