Yesterday's Mani - Poppies!

Inspired by the roses I wore the day before, I figured I'd try another flower - poppies! Their gorgeous red color and the contrast of their bright green stems just makes them such a fun flower for summer.

The featured color in this mani as the basis for the flowers as well as the other nails is Essie's "Geranium" - I also used a bit of OPI "A Good Mandarin is Hard To Find" and Essie's "Well Red" to add a little depth to the petals. For the centers I used Julep's "Brandt" and a blend of OPI "Need Sunglasses?" and Julep's "Stella". The stems was a mix of "Need Sunglasses?" and Essie's "Pretty Edgy".

I think this is such a perfect way to wear red and green without it looking like Christmastime! What do you think?

What other flowers do you think I should attempt? Sunflowers are definitely on my list!

Happy Polishing,
