Remembrance Day Nails

Lest We Forget...


Hello all, and here I am again with another Saturday Manicure. Today I have done my nails for Remembrance Day tomorrow. I did my first ever Poppy Nails last year and wanted to stay with the same design, but jazz it up a bit. So I thought lets do a 'bling' poppy.
I started by painting my nails white and doing a two toned green swirl water marble for the base of this nail art.



I matte topcoated it for two reasons, 1) its dries quick and 2) I've found it doesn't smear the polish.


Then using a medium size dotting tool and Nails Inc Big Apple Red I made the poppies.


And blinged them up with Nail Pop Dorothy and the same dotting tool.


The black dot was made with Pretty black Metallic polish, which is more like a black holographic polish, to keep the bling look.


Sparkly but the Nail Pop red glitter doesn't come to life properly until a topcoat is applied, just look....




I love how these look, and when the suns shines it catches the glitter and makes them really sparkle :) Green isn't normally a colour I wear as I don't think its suits my skin tone, but with the red poppies I do like this, hope you do too. If you are doing a Poppy Nails I'd love to see, feel free to post them on my facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by and till next time stay safe and much love...
