Today, November 11th, is Remembrance Day and in honor of that I did a special manicure.
I grew up as part of a military family — both past and present generations have served in the Air Force, Army and Navy. I even have a Great Uncle who was held prisoner in a POW camp during WW2. Because of that I’ve always made sure to take the time to stop, reflect, and remember those who have fought so hard to defend our freedom–those who came, those who didn’t, and those who were forever changed all in the name of Peace and Freedom. I wanted to do a simple Poppy manicure in memory and remembrance, and I think they came out perfectly.
The polishes I used for this manicure were:
- ACO by Ardene Day Dreamer — base color.
- ACO by Ardene Strawberry Fields — red.
- Mariposa Black.
- OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls — white.
- Seche Vite fast dry top coat.
So what do you think of these Poppy Nails in honor of Remembrance Day?How do you mark the day? I went to my local Remembrance Day services this morning with my father (who is retired from the Air Force) and the boyfriend and it was amazing to see everyone gathering together to pay tribute.
