Freehand Rememberance Poppies

Allo polish Pals!
I hope you guys had a great week and have something nice planned for the weekend!

You may or may not know but tomorrow is Rememberance day in England and while I am not in the country is it still something I still strongly believe in. I will have a one minute silence by myself tomorrow in a quite place.

 Remembrance Day, also known as Poppy day is on the 11th hour, am, on the 11th day of the 11th month we pay tribute to our fallen soldiers from World War I and all those who lost their lives on the the line of duty wherever the battle field may be.

Since 1921 it has become respectable to wear a poppy pinned to your shirt/jacket in a mark of respect for those lives lost. Originally in 1921 people would wear real poppies, this is because Poppies grew through out the battlefields of Flanders; Their bright and vibrant colour became a symbol for the blood lost during the war. It is with deep respect that my generation and others have the freedom and lives we do.

For this manicure I bagan by applying Mezmris Nail Lacquer's 'Armor Up' base coat and once dry applied two thin coats of Barry M's 'Blackberry. I allowed to dry and then added a layer of Pro-FX's top coat. I used my favourite brushes to paint the poppies and added a little gold detailing. On my other nails I added a simple gold triangle stud from The Born Pretty Store (You can see my review on these HERE) I finished it all off by adding another layer or top coat and finally m Wet 'n' Wild matte top coat.

I'm not very good at painting flowers but I really wanted to do this manicure because it has so much love and respect behind it.

Do you take part in the minute silence? What do you think of my poppies?

Thank you for visiting, I hope you have a beautiful day. I'll be back on Sunday with another post,
