Red Poppies

Hey there guys ! So I've got an old manicure I did waaay back in February (I think), so absolutely ages ago ! I do plan on going and doing my nails straight after I finish writing this post so that I'll have something new to post for you tomorrow. I have an idea of what I'm going to do, so we'll see how it turns out !

I did this design using The Sugar Cube's (home of Nostalgic Nail Lacquer) tutorial, using roughly the same colour theme as was in the original design. I did the design literally as soon as I'd finished reading the tutorial ! I actually think this is one of my first ever floral nails, and I found it so easy because I did most of it with a dotting tool !

For this design I didn't use any of the same polishes as were used in the original tutorial. Instead, I used OPI Skull and Glossbones for the base, then I used OPI Big Apple Red and 17 Tiger's Eye for the flowers (you couldn't really see the difference between the two reds though), P2 Hug Me ! and then my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pen in black. I'm beginning to realise I actually use the nail art pens for most of my manicures, I'll have to tally up the different posts I've done so far and calculate how often I use them !

And there we go ! I really did like this manicure, and I think I actually kept it on for several days (this was back when I could bare to keep a design on for more than 48 hours) ! Don't forget to tune in tomorrow for a new NOTD !

Oh and also, don't forget to vote for your favourite finalist (I'm one of them !) in Makeup Savvy's nail challenge ! All you have to do is comment what your favourite design is (my nails are entry A, hint hint !) ! Voting is only open for a few more days because the winner will be announced on Wednesday so don't leave it too late !
