NOTD: Poppy flowers

Happy Friday!!
I hope you're all planning and dreaming on a fantastic weekend ahead, I sure am, so I will keep this short and sweet. 
What's more lovable early in the summer than red poppies everywhere? I love these wild little flowers and to me they announce the fun time of holidays, specially school holidays and evoke so many chilhood memories! I did this manicure a while ago and really loved it. I hope you like it too.

For this manicure I used Barry M coconut as a base, and freehanded the poppies using OPI Fashion a bow, from last Holiday's Gwen Stefani's collection, and Zoya Shawn. See below a swatch of Barry M coconut which is so perfect as base for nailart!

For achieving the "watercolor" effect of the flowers I used different nail art brushes dipped in a bit of nail polish remover, so the colours would be diluted. It was quite easy to do!

I hope you've liked my manicure with poppy flowers :)
Have a great weekend!
