Lest We Forget
Hey all, hope you are all well. Its a very miserable, dull and rainy Saturday here today :( but the weather won't stop me from doing my nails, even though I can't get a decent photo outside!
This is the first year I have done my nails in remembrance for all the brave soldiers we have lost over the years, and I chose to do a Poppy design.
I'm not normally a green polish person, though I have quite a few bottles!! And choosing the right shade of green was a bit tricky. After some trial and error I found the right shade.

This polish was one of my bargain buys from Poundland. A beautiful cream, grass colour. Could easy be a one coater, but as always I did two.
A beautiful shine too, no top coat here! For the Poppies I used the red and black polish I got earlier this week in the Glamour Magazine.

With a dotting tool I made poppy/flower shapes on each nail. I admit some just look like dodgy blobs lol, but I'm happy with them.
Then again with a smaller dotting tool added black dots to the centre of each poppy.
It was so overcast outside that the flash on my camera still went off over though I had light going into my light box. So I stood outside on the front step to quickly get another two photos in somewhat natural lighting.
I love these so much, even though as I said earlier I'm not a green polish person!! Hope you like them too :)
Thats all for today, have a great weekend and stay safe...
