This is such a beautiful, modern-looking ad from the August 1946 issue of Ladies’ Home Journal magazine. Cutex “Play Red” Nail polish – the newest color under the sun. Brilliant, sun-sparkle color that glows in daylight – moonlight too… spice for the browned-butter shade of your skin.
I love the intensity of colors used in the artwork. The elegant legs and hands reaching out from under a beach umbrella show off the polish so prettily. Nice touch with the long red ribbon too. The beach scene shows three lovely bathing beauties doing ballet poses, while a dog looks on. Just a gorgeous way to sell nail polish!
