In the first picture above you can see two nail polishes from the 1960s: the shape of the glass bottles and the labels are reminiscent of the one appearing in the film. The second picture portrays Hello Sunshine, a “fun-shine nail tint” for girls which was launched in the 1970s; the screw cap is exactly the one seen in the film.
