The Digit-al Dozen Does Decades Week: The Dirty Thirties!

Today I bring you to the Dirty Thirties.
"The Dust Bowl of the 1930s, sometimes referred to as the "Dirty Thirties” lasted about a decade. This was a period of severe dust storms which caused major agricultural damage to American and Canadian prairie lands, primarily from 1930 to 1936, but in some areas, until 1940. It was caused by severe drought and decades of extensive farming without crop rotation." -source
 To see photos from this decade are heart breaking: the Dirty Thirties and The Great Depression in one ten year span. So many suffered and so many survived with a strong will.

I used BarryM Lychee as my base. I then sponged on Catrice Lost in Mud and OPI It's All San Andreas's Fault. I used an Essence Nail Art black pen for the numbers and Essie Matte About You to give it an earthy feel.

Don't forget to check out the other ladies and see what decade they visit today!
