I am always very impressed by the very sophisticated girls. I love them. Like, I love Dita Von Teese. Maybe because I am totally the opposite*.

I don’t even know what you call this style of painting your nails (do you know ?) but it makes me think of Mad Men: the perfection of women at that time and the hours spent to achieve that perfection.

I would have hated to live at that time, but I love to dream about it.

* after a time of manicure obsession, I am back to a simple transparent polish. On good days. Most days, my nails go bare.
