DIY Kate Spade Inspired Splatter Necklace

I fell in love with these Kate Spade rhinestone splatter earrings, and recently picked up a few rhinestone necklaces at Target in the clearance section for $1.99 (leftover from Christmas at 90% off!) and thought I'd try and recreate the look
I used yellow and pink nail polish, and toothpicks to spread the splatter out a bit 
Finished product 
Before (I still have two left to use up!)

Mardi Gras in Burlington

I recently went to the Magic Hat Mardi Gras in Burlington, VT
Despite being March in the Northeast, it was a pleasant day 
They hold a parade during the day (family friendly) and have festivities throughout the night 
I'm a Burlington native so it was nice being back
Church Street has some great boutiques and shopping (I held back..difficult)

and great restaurants...
