LDTTWC Day 3: I Remember When…

Some of you may have caught my brain fart yesterday, when I accidentally published (for about five minutes) day four instead of day three. So this is a day late (sorry!) but still within the rules of the challenge, so here it is.

Today’s theme was to pick a memorable event, either personal or from history. You all know I’m a history buff, so naturally, I had to pick an event from history. After a lot of thought, I ended up with nails inspired by the Diamond Necklace Affair, which you can read about here.

The story involves a 2,800 carat diamond necklace, Marie Antoinette, a con-woman, a cardinal, and some very angry jewelers.

I loved the design of the necklace, so that’s what I went with. Can you imagine wearing 647 diamonds around your neck? Or buying a necklace that costs as much as a battle ship? It’s a bit excessive, but it’s actually really gorgeous (replica anyone?).

I used China Glaze First Mate and Essie Loophole and a dotting tool. Super easy, but I think they turned out pretty well.

Hope you guys liked my (real) Day 3 post! I think it turned out pretty well (especially since I only had about 45 minutes to do these). SOOOO sorry about the cleanup on these btw. I worked ten hours yesterday and was so tired I didn’t even notice until I had taken it off 😦
