Summer Challenge--Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Hi Readers!  Today I'm on board with another mani for the Summer Challenge.  Today's selection is the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.  I was really happy to do this one because to me royalty just screams purple SO I got to use my Vicious from Cult Nails for the first time!
As you can see I had a bit of a calamity and my pinkie has become almost a stump :(  We'll see if I file the rest down or try to live with them being uneven lol!
Look how short he is!!!! Yikes!
Despite old Stumpy this is really a pretty lovely mani!
I used plates BM08 and BM09 for the small crowns and the diamonds.  The larger crown is from plate RA119 and stamped using Sally Hansen Silver Sweep. I added some clear and colored rhinestones for accent lol!

Being an American I don't have a fondness for Britain's Royal family the way my friends in the UK do but what I can say is kudos to Queen Elizabeth for sitting on her thrown for 60 years!  Wow what an amazing feat! 

There is a LONG list of gals working on this Summer Challenge so please check them out when you have some time!!
