Who, what & how we've been keeping our tips à la mode  

From Passion to Trust, symbols according to flowers 

Words by Carla Kim

Anybody has a clue as to how long the history of manicure is?
Yup, if you’ve been keeping up with VANITY TABLE blogs, then you would recall that it was in 3000 BC in China when people used a lacquer made of arabic gum, beeswax and egg whites -
mentioned in 10 Things you should know about gel nail.
Then what about the 'modern manicure' that we know of now?
Let’s take a moment to look back and dive into the past 100 years of manicures:
who, what, and how we’ve been polishing our nail tips - with VANITY TABLE.  

1920s
The Roaring 20s

Old School Red & Moon Manicure

What’s the first movie reference that comes to mind when someone says 1920s?
That’s right. Mr. Gatsby in
The Great Gatsby.
With the advent of the 20th Century, the 1920s were a time when women’s clothing underwent revolutionary changes. The 20s were about the time when Coco Chanel launched her first clothing line and the evening dresses inspired by the “flappers” came into fashion. Short, boyish haircuts, lavish faux gemstones, and high-arched brows as long as the polished nail tips were in style.Unlike the previous natural, sheer nails of the Victorian era, nail styling became much more polished with the advent of classic solid reds and geometric elements. One of the most popular nail styling of the decade was the ‘moon manicure’, which resembles the nails we now call 'deep-french' nails.
Fashion trends always return with a twist, but it’s a wonder that the perfectly posh deep-french nails such as
N To You or N Petal has its influences rooted in a century’s old nail trend!
