Nail polish as we know it today wasn't officially created until around 1920 after the invention of paint for automobiles. Yes, nail polish was based off of car paint! Michelle Ménard, working for Revson aka Revlon, is the person credited with the modern interpretation of nail polish. The first bottle was sold under the Revlon name in 1932. In the 1920s and 1930s, the manicure that had all the girls doing the Charleston was the Gatsby, aka a moon manicure. Polish was applied to the nail except to the moon area. The French manicure that looks so classic wasn't actually officially produced until 1978, although Max Factor developed an early version called Society Nail Tint and Society Nail White in 1927. In the 1940s, red oval nails were brought into popularity by Rita Hayworth, a pin-up girl. More celebrity nails:
