When it's done, it's done. And no one will know until it's done.

It's day two of the Digital Dozen book week challenge. Today I've chosen to do a mani based on a book which I enjoyed and movie which I loved. Normally it's the other way round for me. I love the book and when the film comes out I'm like, "Why did they ruin the book!?" but this film was a happy experience for me and I really enjoyed it more than the novel.  I really love books about monarchies and even though I generally stick with the non-fiction ones, this book and series is just a must read.  I wanted to use sort of "regal" colors so it seemed fitting to start with A-England's Dragon. Especially given the content of the book and the fact that it's a famous piece of English history.  Have you figured it out yet?  The book is The Other Boelyn Girl.  I wanted to incorporate the things I felt were most important in the book but while sticking with a cohesive theme so I decided to highlight some aspects of Queen Anne. If you saw the film, the necklace should have given this away and if not, surely you've seen the iconic necklace in portraits of the queen.  I also included some stamps to represent the luxe gold brooches and jewels she wore as queen.  I hope you all enjoyed this one and don't forget to check out what my fellow dozeners have come up with for today!!

Colors used: 
A England Dragon
Orly Luxe and Au Champagne
