Keeping it Real!

As you all know The Kennedy Cupcakes are renowned for their Red Nails and Red lips. See Linzi sporting both...

But... did you know 1940’s nails looked somewhat different from our nails today?
Having done a little research (google) I’ve found out that…
A) Red was not the only popular colour (Lisa I will be wearing red, it’s my favourite, I don’t care what anyone says!!)  That green, brown, navy blue, even black (which is very ‘in’ just now) were all popular colours! And that it was common the wear nail polish which co-ordinated with your outfit.
And B) That the Nail polish was applied leaving out a half moon and often with a silver/white sliver at the tip.
Panic not though, Rita Hayworth sported some fully painted nails in the 40’s too “phew”
I’ve included some attempts of mine at achieving this look… yet to try the sliver at the tip.

I even treated my Mum to some 1940’s glam!

Hope you have lots of fun missing out your half moons! I have even found the perfect shade for our new outfits! Very exciting!

Happy nail painting!

Lots of love with cherries on top, Cupcake Carol xxx

Mulvey Wedding - Millenium Hotel, Glasgow

The Cupcakes were very honoured to be invited to perform at the evening reception of Louise and Derek Mulvey.

It makes a gig even easier when it is in beautiful surroundings such as the Millenium Hotel in George Square, Glasgow.

The bride and groom thoroughly enjoyed their day and we even got the bride and some of her guests up to join us on the dance floor for a Cupcake Stroll!

A stroll around Glasgow would have had you confused though, you would have sworn you were in the U.S... Philadelphia to be exact.

You can just make out some of the American street furniture for the World War Z movie!

Boss Lisa, Cupcake Jules and Cupcake Carol were clearly moonlighting as a SWAT team!

Brad did phone to meet up, but we never double book ourselves so we had to politely decline... Maybe another time Mr Pitt, we Cupcakes, are busy gals!

p.s. be sure to check back in with the blog this week as we report on our 3 other gigs from this weekend, yes 4 gigs in total... A Cupcake Marathon!
Tea dance at Celtic Park, Kirkintilloch Canal Festival and The Corinthian's 1st Birthday!
