sterling cooper draper polish

If you don't watch Mad Men, I don't want to be friends with you. Just kidding, I will still be your friend. But I will feel very sorry for you because that means you don't get to look at these beautiful faces every Sunday evening:

Tonight is the season finale and I am beyond excited to see what happens in the lives of these crazy and gorgeous people. Last week's episode was totally cray so I can't even fathom how ol' Matthew Weiner (pronounced Wine-r... disappointing, I know) will top that with the finale.

So in the spirit of the occasion, I decided to do some simple Mad Men nails!

I used only three colors for this: Wet n Wild Black Creme, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and H&M Berry Love. I used tape to make the nude windows on my middle and pinky fingers, but had some weird problems--the tape kept tearing cleanly down the middle as I lifted it off my nail. I've done a ton of tape manis (using this same tape!) and I've never had this problem before. I'm thinking it might be the base coat I used, which was kind of rough (Revlon Post Trauma Nail Treatment). Any thoughts on this?

So if you couldn't already ring finger is an interpretation of the ad agency's logo (though I guess I should have left out the P...hmmmmm) and my ring finger is a suit, cus if there's one thing Don Draper and Roger Sterling can do well, it's look goddamn handsome in a suit.

So are you all as excited as I am for the finale tonight? Or have I totally lost you with this manicure? Either way, I will leave you with this gif of Don Draper (aka Jon Hamm) looking like the suave sonofabitch he is:

PS I decided I'm done with square nails for a while. My job is super rough on my hands and my square nails kept tearing at the I think oval nails look super classy and feminine. I'm excited to do some sweet stripey manicures with the four (oops) Essie polishes and nail art brushes I just ordered on Amazon...eeeeeep!
