That 70s Manicure

This months manicure is inspired by the current 70s trends and in particular, Geo Pop inspiration.  Think graphic shapes colliding with precision and contrasting shades of mustard, blues and greens…

When I designed this nail art, the salon team at Powder were quite dubious as to my colour choices but then pleasantly surprised when they saw how well the grey-blue and mint green complemented one another.

The trick to pulling off the geo 70s vibe with confidence is to throw abandon to fashion rules.  Think brown and blue don’t go together?  This season they’re a match made in heaven.  Consider orange and yellow to be ‘out there’?  Well in this trend story, they’re a must-wear combination.  Mix it up and team your tonal aqua blue dress with red lipstick, a basket weave tote and stacked heels and of course your designer mani by Powder.

Another print combining colour and shapes is Aztec, a Far Eastern -inspired mish mash and there is plenty of it in the shops right now.  This Warehouse Aztec Print Midi Dress, £32 will see you into spring summer and is perfect to combine the 70s vibe with.  Wear yours with a floppy hat and suede fringed bag.
