Happy Memorial Day. (Maybe you aren't supposed to wish people a happy Memorial Day?) I decided to do a poppy manicure for Memorial day. The base color is Sinful Colors Aquamarine. The poppies are Wet 'n Wild Megalast Heatwave and Wet 'n Wild Black Cream. I wanted to use Zoya Poppy for the poppies, but the color wasn't red enough. I followed the tutorial posted below. Cutepolish on Youtube has great nail art tutorials that beginners can do. If you want to play with nail art, check out her channel. I only did two things differently then the video. I used a different base color and instead of using a large dotting tool, I used a small dotting tool and made a series of small dots for the poppy centers.
Whenever I think of poppies, I always think of this scene from the Wizard of Oz. Poppies...poppies...poppies.
