So Poppular

Hey all!!  Welcome to flower day for the 31 Day Challenge!!

I've been wanting to do poppies on my nails for sometime now and I'm excited to share what I did.  The only problem with this mani, is that it started peeling the very next day - definitely not long lasting!!  I wonder if my base coat loses it's "umpf" once you reach the bottom and it thickens up...hmmmm.

And for poops and giggles, here's Revlon - Popular, I have Whimsical and didn't really like it, so thought I would try this one - meh, it's okay....  I want the Revlon with black glitter but can not find it anywhere!!!

For my Flower Mani, I used:
Main Color: Finger Paints - Paper Mache
Poppies:  Essie - Russian Roulette
I used acrylic paint for the black stamens.
Top Coat:  Seche Vite
