This pattern is patterned off of (har har, pattern puns) the Eames Dot pattern - a design Charles and Ray Eames did for a printed textiles competition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1947.
For my supplies, as per my new policy for February, I used two untried Floss Gloss polishes - Dinge, a pale, dirty pinkish creme, and Faded, an amazing grey inspired by faded tattoo ink. So you've bought a bunch of nail polish and now you're wondering, where should I put all of these bottles?!
Our second manicure theme is 'cotton' since the traditional two year anniversary gift is cotton!! I am a huge fan of mid-century modern product design and especially the Eames; their design principles really resonate with me.


I really like both colors but was a smidgen bummed out at how Dinge applied (it took three coats instead of 2, and my expectations were high because I've heard a lot of hype about this brand). BUT probably the extra coat is my fault for not mixing my bottle of Dinge enough before applying it! I feel like this is a pretty easy design - especially when looking at a photo - and is a lil similar to my recent constellation nails. For February the Digit-al Dozen theme is 'vintage' and I'm starting it off with a fab mid-century modern pattern. I'm also trying to use my stockpile of new and untried polishes for the month of February, so for this week I'm faced with a double challenge *cue dramatic music*.


I'm doing research for my novel: The Girl in the Jitterbug Dress (sequel) and I thought it would be fun to include some manicure or pedicure stuff that was unique or started in those eras?
