Weave of Gold Paint and Glass
Time for the 2nd installment of the NCC Jewelry challenge! Last week, I used a ring that wasn't initially my style, but had a lot of emotional attachment to it. This week, my inspiration was a piece of costume jewelry that is just something I like!
I'm not sure if this is an Avon piece, or something I found at Target, or maybe even a Groupon. I love finding jewelry on sale or clearance!
I used Orly French Manicure Sweet Blush for the base, and then took a striper brush into my Maybelline Bold Gold and tried to create a similar weave pattern on the tips of my nails.
My nails are too small, and my rhinestones too big to put as many on as the pendant has, but I think it's a good representation. Plus, I put as many on my thumb as I could!
Do you prefer costume jewelry that looks like it *could* be real, or do you like your costume jewelry to look obvious?
