1960's Inspired Nail Art


Today's manicure is 1960's inspired nail art which is my challenge nail art for this week's pick n mix challenge. Two prompts for this week are 60's inspired and matte/texture. I have moyou back to 60's 01 stamping plate, so i decided to attempt that prompt. 
inspired by 1960s nail art
 It took me a while to figure out exactly what i want to do on my nails even though I had a stamping plate for it. I knew about "flower power" because i did a manicure for this laqst year(check here) but i wanted to include few more 60's elements to this mani. 

I come to know that, bold colors and psychedelic prints were famous in this decade, so i went with the bold colorful look for the nail art. I also come to know that "smiley" is invented in 1963, so one of my nail have to have that.
