Baby Boomer Music Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas
The prompt a little while ago (yes, I’m late again!) for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group was music. I stamped some musical notes onto a gradient to create these baby boomer music nails.
The base is a French tips gradient of nude and white, to create “baby boomer” nails. Baby boomer nails were a bit of a thing a while ago, and while I’ve worn them before, I haven’t ever blogged about them. I still can’t quite figure out exactly where the term “baby boomer” comes from. The closest I can get is that during the baby boom era – the 1960s – the fashion was to wear white nails, and this look is inspired by that.
For the base, I used Nella Milano Peach Schnapps and Barry M Cotton. It looked a bit too pink when I’d finished though, so I went over it again with the white and Orly Pink Nude this time, to tone down the colour a bit. You can see that the final colour at the cuticle end of my nails is far less pink than the polish in the bottle.
I stamped some musical notes on top, which obscures the blend of the gradient somewhat.
I am trying to desperately catch up. Last Friday’s prompt was “hot pink” – and I still haven’t done that yet – and there’s this Friday’s “wedding” theme still to do as well.
Wish me luck!
