Military Plaid Nail Art

Good morning, how are you this morning? It is freezing here! Our high today is going to be 12. TWELVE! haha! I guess winter decided to come with a vengeance to make up for a snow-free October (a rarity in this part of Montana).

Anyway, I thought today would be a good day to show you this military look inspired by an outfit of the day from Glamour-Zine.

SOPI Caught With My Khakis Down, OPI Tickets to Paradise, essie no more film | Be Happy And Buy Polish

On all nails (except accent) I started off with 2 coats of Sephora by OPI Caught with My Khakis Down, then placed these flat studs in a row on each nail. On my accent nail (and thumb) I started with 3 coats of OPI Tickets to Paradise before using a striping brush with essie no more film. Then I topped it all off with a coat of ellagee glass top coat.

Today is Remembrance Day (in the Commonwealth of Nations) to recall the end of World War I on this day in 1918. It is also Veterans Day in the USA, to honor those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. I’d like to leave you with the poem “In Flanders Fields,” a poem written by a WWI soldier after presiding at the funeral of his friend and fellow soldier.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
