Fashion site Mode has made a cottage industry out of videos that demonstrate the fashion trends of the past 100 years. In the past, they've wowed the Internet with 100 years of lingerie, engagement rings, wedding gowns, hats, men's swimwear, fitness gear, and even dinners. But with their latest video, Mode has really put their finger on what people want to see: nail art! The art of fingernails. They put... their finger on it. Anyway, it's a good video:
Those 40s nails were intense, right? You could put someone's eye out with those! That's probably why they were the Greatest Generation.
Are you going to adopt any of these retro styles the next time you get your nails did? Any of them would still look great if paired with the right outfit. You just might have to show this video to your manicurist so they know what the hell you're talking about. Or you could show them an old, yellowed copy of Harper's Bazaar.
