Time Warp Challenge: It's Vintage, Darling!

Day 2 of the challenge is here already! I really had no idea what to do for vintage nails, but I did get my Red Angel plates the other day... and they had a few nice rose stamps in the set...

I used a base of Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Cafe Au Lait
Stamped with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Mint Sprint, Barry M Raspberry, and RA-115 & 116
Topped it off with Seche Vite* and then Essie Matte About You

*The coat of Seche Vite before the matte top coat was to prevent the polish from bleeding. In my own experience my matte top coat has smudged a lot of my nail art.

Below you can see the manicure before I added the Matte top coat. I found the matte gave it a more "vintage" appearance :)
