Super Cool Vintage Nail POLISH Experiment




This is truly nail polish. They are tiny little tins with a waxy polish in it. I can see how nail polish got it's name. :) I decided to be brave and try to 'polish' my nails! I used my finger (there were finger marks in it already) and rubbed it on my nail. Let's just say that nail polish is way less fun than nail lacquer. It would be great to use for buffing out your nails. I'm thinking that it was meant to be used with one of those chamois buffers. I'm sure it was also creamier and less streaky 60+ years ago! When I wiped it off my nails felt moisturized and had a nice sheen. What a fun experiment! I have a new appreciation for our current evolution of nail polish.

It feels like car wax. I think I'm going to be brave and try it when I redo my mani. Cool, huh?

That is so cool! I remember my Great Grammy on Daddy's side using something like that. She used with this little round powder puff looking thing.She lived in Hollywood and had long pointy nails that she constantly filed and buffed. She also smoked those super long cigs in the long fancy filter thing and always wore high heels. I thought she was cool.....now maybe a little crazy! :)

That makes sense! A powder puff would work way better. :)

It sounds like she was a super cool great Grandma. :)

Where did you ever find those? I think they are supposed to be used as a buffing polish. They are amazing.
