This image doesn’t exactly scream ‘Spring is a bright new feeling’ at me, but it does scream ‘hair and choker goals’ right in my face.

This picture isn’t a ludicrous flight of fancy. Those nails belong to Bonnie, a girl who really does scrabble about under the bonnet of her car checking oil, batteries and spark plug. She also shoes the odd bit of typing and her fair share of washing up, plug changing and picture hanging.
But maybe we have been a little unfair. Bonnie is not only one of our favourite make-up artists (working for Elizabeth Arden) but she’s a fully trained manicurist too.

One of the many interesting things about a steadily growing magazine collection is that you start to identify original source images for illustrations. I imagine that Mr John Storey never imagined that anyone would remember a single photo of Ika Hindley in Cosmopolitan from a year earlier, even less that someone yet-to-be-born would later scan and connect the two images.
