NailFile PHOTOGRAPHIC NAIL DESIGN COMPETITION

THEME: The Roaring Twenties

DEADLINE 2nd March 2020

Proud Sponsor

Inspired by the Downton Abbey Movie, this theme focuses on the fashions and lifestyle of the 1920s – that glorious time following the First World War when women threw off their restricting corsets to don slinky, satin, low-waisted gowns, long strings of pearls, sparkly and often feathered head-bands, close-fitting cloche hats, glamorous long gloves and feather boas, to party the night away.

 

This was the time when America Jazz Music prevailed and when the highly energetic Charleston was the popular dance of the day. Ladies cut off their long, flowing locks in favour of chin-length bobs, wore dramatic make-up and were practically always seen with a long, bejewelled cigarette holder in one hand, with a glass of champagne in the other. Gentlemen wore well-tailored pinstriped suits, tuxedos, handkerchiefs, fedora hats, suspenders, bow ties and black patent leather shoes and spats.
