1970's Owl Nails

I guess I was in a seventies kind of mood. I sat on my shag carpet and painted by the light of my lava lamp. Harvest gold... Avocado... Hey mom (or anyone else that remembers everything) what was the seventies red-orange called??? :) This is a fun manicure! I keep wanting to make the bow chica bow wow sound.



Brown: Barielle Make it a Latte
Harvest Gold: Sally Hansen Forsythia
Avocado Greeen: BB Couture Iced Olive
Red-orande: Sally Hansen Nasturtium

I finished my entry for PHD's challenge. I can't wait to share it with you on Saturday!!! :)

Oh my goodness, I love it! It is practically identical to a pillow one in my great-aunt twice removed yadda yadda's house!

Ah, I love this. Not only have you nailed the 70's, you have also managed to make it look cute, which is something I've always thought was impossible.

I believe that red-orange was called Rust Brown. They were horrid colors, even then, but they certainly bring back memories! ;o)
