I’m a major Mad Men fan, and a nail art fan. So to celebrate the impending final episodes I turned to fancy celeb nail artist Mei Kawajiri for a Mad Men-inspired mani, complete with cigarettes, booze, and my favorite characters (READ: not Pete).
Mei created those sick, Drake-inspired, “If You’re Reading This” designs for Hannah Bronfman, and it was exciting to watch her use the tiniest brushes and mix minuscule vials of colored polish to create these amazing little images on me over a period of two hours.
I will sheepishly admit that I am not gifted in the nail department: small hands and narrow nail beds! Watching her make these images on nails as itty bitty as mine was ridiculous. They’re so cute and little. You guys, I can’t. I need to get them framed.
On the right hand: A cigarette. 🚬, Don Draper, the SC&P agency logo, Roger Sterling and the Mad Men logo.
On the left: The falling Don Draper from the show’s intro, Megan Draper, Peggy Olson, Joan Holloway, and an old-fashioned 🍹.
These gel nails will stay flawless for about two weeks and then I’ll have to say goodbye — but I’ll already be in mourning, thanks to the upcoming series finale.
Check out some of amazing nails Mei has done and posted on her Instagram:
The final episodes of the seventh and final season of Mad Men start Sunday, April 5th on AMC at 10 pm E.T.
