In the French period, opponents of the Bonapartes, as the writer Maria Aletta Hulshoff, were locked in this Dutch Bastille. The castle has had many purposes. Not only as a defense work (military) prison (until 1872) and hospital until 2002, the castle also had the function of central clothing warehouse of the Ministry of Defense. when the moat was dug, the castle was the scene of the oldest citizen of Netherlands Taptoe (musicband), the local "Friendship Harmony". After the restoration in the late eighties, the castle was used as temporary office space for a business. In 2006 the municipality of Woerden launched plans to convert the castle to housing. Residents of Woerden participated in how the complex would look like. Since 2007 the castle is used partially as a hospitality accomodation and is used as a weddinglocation.
Okay back to the nailpoish :-) My daughter Michèle order some nailpolish from American Apparel for me. I have three of them but for this mani I choose a nice grey-taupe color.
I did two lyers of it. This was not the most easy application to do. The polish was gloppie and the brush wasn't my favorite also. Maybe I have to use some thinner to make it more liquid. Next time I try. The color is very pretty, a soft shade of grey-taupe. It's a creme formula.
Afterwards I used some konad plate M63 and glitter. Because of the lenght of my nails I should double stamp them but I did it on my thumb and it wasn't so nice. Even the width of the stamp didn't fit my nails.
The pattern of the plate is called in Holland "Pied de Poule" in English Houndstooth, houndstooth check or hound's tooth. It is a duotone textile pattern, characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes. The traditional colours are black and white, although now other colours are occasionally substituted for the black or the white.
Well I do hope you like it! Take care and see you next time. Have a great weekend and enjoy life.
