Make-Up with Trophy Wife Nail Art

A guide to creating the perfect 1970s nail look with Trophy Wife Nail Art.

16 Mar 2018

In the lead up to our lavish revival of the 1970s classic, Abigail’s Party, we asked some lifestyle experts to help us put together the Perfect 70s Party Guide. In preparation, Trophy Wife Nail Art have created a classic nail design to complete your look.

For this look, the nail shape and length is a classic 70s nail style and the nail art design is a twist on the classic french nail which was very popular at the time. Using tones of brown with a pop of red, this retro tonal archway design is a perfect accompaniment to your prawn cocktail entrée.

70s ARCHWAY NAILS

STEP ONE

Paint your nails, your favourite shade of nude.

STEP TWO

Grab a red nail polish, using the point of the brush to create the round edge, paint down towards the cuticle to create your first archway.

STEP THREE

Using an orange polish, repeat step two slightly below the red to create the illusion of a red striped archway.

STEP FOUR

STEP FIVE

Using the first nude we used in step one, repeat the same steps above to create the final step in our tonal rainbow french. Finish with a coat of clear top coat and you are ready to party.
