THREE Nail Art Challenge - Day 1 Antique

I have been looking for a challenge to join since I started the blog, but I didn't want to do the same ones that have been done over and over. Then I came across this one by the lovely Mateji:
Mateji Ustvarjata
The challenge is broken up into three parts of three:
Part One - Time
1.1st: Antique
2. 5th: Ultra modern
3. 9th: Futuristic
Part Two - Favorites
1.11th: Favourite song
2. 15th: Favourite book
3. 19th: Favourite emotion
Part Three - Adjectives
1.21st: Soft
2. 25th: Edgy
3. 29th: Wavy

Now on to my submission for day one. At first I was thinking of antiques furniture, fabrics, etc. But I just recently did something similar, so I changed my mind to jewels. Like these:

Some of the Imperial jewels from the Kremlin Armory
So what better to use to recreate this look, then GLITTER!!! And lots of it!

OPI Shimmer and Simmer, an unknown red glitter (any suggestions?), and Crown Me Already!
I started with a gloriously shiny base of silver, then added blobs of the colour glitter and rhinestones. Prepare for lots of photos!!!

Can you tell I LOVE how it turned out!? Will have to keep this in mind for a special occasion. What do you think?
