Sat-Art-Day Club: 1960s!

I decided to go with a funky pattern for today's nails. I was inspired by some of the psychedelic colors and patterns that you see in items from the 1960s. Take a look!

I used NYC Greenwich Village for the pink, Essie Meet me at Sunset and Zoya Arizona for my oranges, Pure Ice Vintage for the yellow, Color Club Twiggy is the bright green, and L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer in Forest Green. I just used a small striper brush to make all these stripes in small swirling patterns. I like how the thumb and index fingers turned out the best!

Thanks for looking! Be sure to check out what everyone else did for their 1960s inspired manis!


  1. I lived as a 20 something in the 60's - this is very cool - it looks a lot like Puchi inspired to me - love it!

    1. Thank you! I had to look that up to see what it was, and you are right. I actually was inspired by this plastic tray that my mother-in-law always uses at her house when we have big family get-togethers. It came from my husband's grandma and she says it was from the 60s. It has colors and a pattern very similar to this.


Feel free to comment, or even ask questions here as well. I try to respond to everyone within a day or two, and would love to hear what you think about my blog in general, the nail art, or any suggestions you may have.
