Memorial Day is an US Federal holiday celebrated every year on the last Monday in May. It is a day to honor and remember the men and women who died that have served in the United States Armed Forces. Some people celebrate this day with barbeques and as the unofficial start to summer, but this day is so much more. My husband was in the Army and he served two tours in Iraq, my brother-in-law is in the Marines, and my brother is joining the Army. I am so proud of them and our men and women that serve. Today I will honor all of the fallen.
I am not saying not to enjoy yourselves, not to have a good time, and not to barbecue… just remember why you are able to do it, because all gave some and some gave all to protect this country.
Well guys sorry for all of the seriousness, it’s just important for me to share, not everyone knows and sometimes we forget the importance. In any event, here are my Memorial Day nails. 🙂
Poppies are worn to honor those who have lost their lives so I painted a poppy on my index finger.
I used two coats of “Julep – Glenn” and topped it with “Elevation – Avalanche”. For the poppy I painted two coats of “Ulta – Snow White” then used “Julep – Glenn” to draw the poppy, I outlined it with “Shimmer – Marilyn” and put a black gem in the center.
No matter how you celebrate this Holiday, do it safely. Have a great day today!
