Akzentz challenge was to get inspired from days gone by. ”Make a nail design based on a vintage fashion piece or period. You are required to dress up 5 nail tips”. My inspiration is from the Edwardian period .The Edwardian period of British history covers the brief reign of King Edward VII, 1901 to 1910, and is sometimes extended in both directions to capture long-term trends from the 1890s to the First World War. The death of Queen Victoria in January 1901 marked the end of the Victorian era. The new king Edward VII was already the leader of a fashionable elite that set a style influenced by the art and fashions of continental Europe. The Edwardian period was a leisurely time when women wore hats, dresses, were holding umbrellas and wearing pearls. They wore very tight corset and long skirt or long dresses. The men were wearing hats and glasses. Had old watch fob for accessories and were travelling a lot. My nails are based in that period. My lady is waiting for her man and she reads the love letters that he sends her. That period was the time which brought on the great loves and the only way to contact was with letters. These love letters were kept till the day they died. They were tied together with a ribbon and put in a trunk.
