This week in NAILS Next Top Artist competition, we were asked to do a 1950s inspired design. The 1950s...This was when fashion, makeup and femininity became highly popular! Back then, it was all about clean lines and that hour glass figure, this has GOT to be the most fierce period! So I thought I'd play on that for this week's challenge, including the two iconic Vogue Magazine covers....hope you enjoy!
