I have a very exciting post today!!!!
I haven't been able to post anything for the last month as I have been on holiday in France. Anyway, so after about 2 weeks with plain nails I was very very keen to do some nail art! (I managed to have fancy nails on the holiday for about 2 weeks and then gave up)
Anyway from the title you may have deduced that I got engaged while I was on holidays. So of course I felt the need to do special engagement nails.
You may wonder what poppies have to do with an engagement....
We were staying the night in a hilltop village in Provence called Bonnieux, and went for a walk to the top of the town/hill after dinner. There was nobody else around and the view of the countryside and the neighboring town Lacoste was amazing. Right over the edge of the path there was lots of poppies growing, and there was a plant that had pink poppies instead of red. I hadn't seen this before, and was taking pictures. They weren't working out very well, so I turned around to ask for my Fiancés better camera. He was down on one knee......
I’ve never been so happy in my life.
I used a tutorial for poppies I found on Paulina's Passions nail blog found here: http://paulinaspassions.com/poppy-flower-nail-art-tutorial/
The background colour is OPI "Did you hear about van gogh" - It was the first time I've used this polish. I really really love it. Ill be purchasing a backup.
The red is Konad special red
The pink poppies are a mixture of revlon Tuscan sun and Rimmel Ash Rose
And the black is Konad special black
(I find the konad polish good for nail art as they are so pigmented)
