The red poppy has become an emblem of remembrance day as during the Great war. Many of the bloodiest battles were fought in Flanders, where the red flowers bloomed across many of these battlefields. There red colour reminding us of the blood spilt of those in the war.
I used Barry M red glitter on my little fingers. W7 red shade on my index fingers. The other nails I painted white. On my ring finger I used the W7 nail polish to create the poppy and used a black diamonte for the center of the flower. On My thumbs I used the red glitter polish to create the poppies and also added a black diamonte.
I think it is so important that we never forget those who have given their lives for us, to be free as we are today. So if you would like to buy a poppy to show your respects or make a donation please visit The Royal British Legion who help so many affected by war and insure that we never forget.
Are you sporting your poppy today? are you going to have a go at this nail art idea? Have you observed the two minutes silence today?
Lots of Love,
