Let's Do the Time Warp Challenge! Day 2: It's vintage, darling!

Hello all! Today is the Day 2 of the Let's Do the Time Warp Challenge! It's vintage, darling! Today's objective was to create a design based off fashion from the past. I've decided to go with the poodle skirt.


In the 1950s, poodle skirts became popular among teenage girls. I believe they would wear them to the school dances or sock hops.


I took inspiration from the TV show Happy Days. I remember the girls dancing in poodle skirts on a checkerboard floor. The music was always playing at that diner! So for my design, I have a poodle skirt, a white T shirt with scarf, the shoes that some girls wore, the checkerboard floor and a fail attempt at a record.


What I used:
  • Thumb:
    • Base color: Julep Carrie
    • Black stamping polish
    • BM 04
  • Index and middle finger
    • Base color: OPI Alpine Snow
    • Peach, black and white acrylic paint
  • Ring finger:
    • Base color: OPI Alpine Snow
    • Black acrylic paint
  • Pinky: 
    • Base color: Essie Really Red
    • Black and white acrylic paint
  • Various nail art brushes

Next Monday will be day 3 of the challenge, I remember when...
Wednesday the 19th will be day 4: lights, camera action!

I'm really looking forward to next week's challenges, I already have some ideas in mind. Here is the layout of the challenge again.


See you tomorrow for day 13 of the 31 day challenge!
PeaceErin
