Remembrance Day - Lest we Forget!

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Canadians are asked to pause in memory of the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives in military service.

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.

by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae 

For this manicure I used OPI's My Vampire is Buff, Barielle's Big Red Apple, Revlon's Silver Dollar and Sally Hansen's Black Out!


  1. Love this mani, so cute!
    And that red... oh my...

    1. Thanks Anca! It was a dull day the day I took the pics so the flash kind of distorts the red :(


  2. Beautiful mani and beautiful sentiment! ♥

    1. Thanks Lu, I may not agree with most of the wars, but I support the military 100%

  3. This is such a beautiful design, the poppy looks perfect! For a great cause, too :)
