LOVELY NAILS

My Weekly Special - - VINTAGE MAKEOVER -

BE­FORE There’s only one colour for vin­tage glam nails: scar­let! “No mat­ter how long or short, red and shiny talons were the or­der of the day in the 1940s and 1950s,” said man­i­curist Sarah Jane Gaffney.

Af­ter fil­ing our three girls’ nails, trim­ming their cu­ti­cles and do­ing a mini hand mas­sage, Sarah Jane was ready to ap­ply the pol­ish. “A vin­tage makeover is all about feel­ing re­laxed and happy so it’s im­por­tant to spend time get­ting ev­ery­thing just right,” added Sarah Jane as she ap­plied two coats of red var­nish, then a glossy top coat for added shine.

“Fifty years ago, women had to wait un­til each coat of pol­ish was dry but to­day, we have the lux­ury of spe­cial nail dry­ing ma­chines so hav­ing glam­orous nails is a much less time­con­sum­ing process.”

Glam­orous talons too

Just like a 1940s pin-up
