In France, "On St. Catherine's Day, it is customary for unmarried women to pray for husbands, and to honour women who've reached 25 years of age but haven't married - called "Catherinettes" in France. Catherinettes send postcards to each other, and friends of the Catherinettes make hats for them - traditionally using the colours yellow (faith) and green (wisdom), often outrageous - and crown them for the day." - from Wikipedia
This tradition disappeared in time... BUT one of my "aunt" knows it very well and she made me a St. Catherine's hat!!! (I turned 25 last month remember?) Every hat is unique and personalized. So here's mine ^^
I was really surprised! I didn't know the hat-part of the St. Catherine's day, just the postcards exchange that my friends and I made when we were young.
To match with my new hat, I had to paint my nails with yellow and green... =)
For this design I had to apply 3 coats of China Glaze Lemon Fizz. I'm not used to apply more than 2 coats but there were still blanks, so the third coat was absolutely necessary! I created flowers with my dotting tool and China Glaze For Audrey because I don't have a green polish :( so I used For Audrey, which is turquoise, + Color Club Club What a Drag. China Glaze retail for $2.99 and Color Club for $3.10 on Nailsupplies
