Get Ready with Me: The Great Gatsby/Flapper Themed Party – Nails


Get Ready with Me (1/4)

On Saturday, my friend had a Gatsby/Roaring ’20s themed birthday party at a beautiful mansion in upstate NY. This series will consist of the nails, makeup, hair, and outfit that I wore.

The Nails

I had no idea where to start with my Flapper manicure. I wondered what they wore on their nails. According to Google, they used red nail polish and created negative space in the shape of a crescent moon. I feel that these are similar to the Ruffian Manicure (which I will share in a blog post soon), except instead of having two colors, the crescent moon is left blank or unpolished.

1. Start with a base coat to protect your natural nail bed.
2. Take your red polish and with your brush carve out a crescent moon shape and fill in the top until it is opaque.
3. Once the manicure is done, smooth out the nail art design with a quick drying top coat. This will make the nail look shiny and protect the nail, making the design last longer.


Thank you for joining me in my Get Ready with Me Series. Look out for the next post on makeup! What do you think of the Flapper Manicure?
