Poppies. Remebering Those Who Fought For Us.

Hi everyone! Happy Remembrance Day~ Although I've been living in the US for 4 years now, I'm still a Canadian at heart, and I still call this day Remembrance Day. One of the most vivid memories I had was being given a plastic poppy and pinning it to my jacket as we sang "In Flander's Fields". So today, I have a mani that is inspired by that memory and that song/poem's first two lines:
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,

 It's a bit rushed, but I really wanted to do this mani, so after getting hom at 10:30, I painted my nails and I'm uploading it at 11:30, just on time :P




Sorry, I know a did a bad job blending the blue with the pearl ): Should've sponged it before I freehanded
 And here are the colors I used:





I wanted to do an undies swatch for you guys, but my camera started freaking out when it saw this avalanche of white frost.... Sorry for the blurriness!
1 coat

1 coat with flash :D
So, that's my quick post for today. Thank you guys so much for reading a day that means a lot to me. God bless our soldiers and our veterans.
