Mid-Century Modern - Starring Chanel Nouvelle Vague and Lynnderella Connect the Dots

This one is a bit out of my comfort zone, but it's a blue AND a "glitter" so I'd say I'm making great strides. LOL!

I took my inspiration from my kitchen table we had when I was a kid. Some of you may remember back that far...formica top with aluminium edging. It was aqua with black and white speckles or a "splatter" design. I think it was a "step down" from the boomerang designs. Of course I couldn't find a photo.

But I did find this one that gives me that same "feel."

I think I actually HAD that pencil sharpener.

Chanel Nouvelle Vague, Summer 2010, is an aqua creme with subtle shimmer that applied well and was opaque in two coats. I had no issues with this one at all.

Connect the Dots is one of Lynnderella's highly-coveted hand-created "glitter" polishes. Not being much of a glitter person, seeing such a unique one, and in black and white no less, practically had me drooling. Plus, being only black and white, it goes well over almost any color creme polish. It has bar glitter, large hex, medium hex, medium round, small round, medium square, small square and a great shimmer - all black and white and in a clear base. WOW!

Put them together and what do you get?  Mid-Century Modern!

First, here's Chanel Nouvelle Vague on it's own. Two coats, no top coat. Check out the subtle shimmer in the close-up!

Does it "take you back" like it does me? What do you think?

Not sure where you'd get Nouvelle Vague now (not part of Chanel's permanent collection) but Lynnderella polishes are available exclusively through llarowe.com now. See the site for ordering details.
