NCC presents: 50s wallpaper nail art

Time for my third nail challenge collaborative post this month with the theme wallpaper. And as I said in my first post I decided to do a little "history lesson", doing my nail art's inspired by the wallpaper/interior designs of certain decades, going back in time. My last post was a 70's wallpaper nail art and next leap is into the 50s.

Source 1 (wallpaper pattern), Source 2 (yellow kitchen)
Well, obviously the 50s wasn't all yellow, I just happened to fall for that and I liked the pattern. The yellow kitchen is from 1959 and the wallpaper there is actually chickens. I also saw a blue kitchen in the same tone.

Basically I used the pattern from the wallpaper, yellow base, stripes and dots in white and gray, which looked kinda graphical and cool. The photos came out kinda weird (think it was dark when I took these) but overall I like this.

Polishes used:
Essence - Love Is In The Air
La Femme (gray)
Kleancolor - White
Jordana Pop Art - Contemporary White

So what do you think? Anyone with knowledge from the 50s, did you see any yellow styling back then and also do you recall any other colors, color tones at that time? :)
