Hello, and I hope you are having a good Memorial Day. I hope you have had a chance to pause and think of our servicemen and women who died while in the service of the United States. Today for Manicure Monday, I wanted to do something in honor of Memorial Day. My uncle served & died during the Vietnam War, and his body wasn’t recovered for almost 40 years. If you’d like to see some pictures, I put a few on facebook here. For my left hand, I used essie licorice and Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I need way more practice in writing on my nails, and doing designs. I was trying to emulate the POW * MIA flag:
Here are my nails. I wrote too big for the MIA and the star didn’t come out quite right, but hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?
For my right hand, I wanted to emulate the Vietnam Veterans patch, seen here:
I used Ulta Limelight, Zoya Creamy, and Sinful Colors Pur Rouge:
I also used essie’s matte about you to mattify all my nails. I did enjoy sitting down and doing my nails for this Memorial Day. What do you think?

Nice manicure for memorial day.
Thank you Lisa! 🙂
Seeing the pictures of your uncle on FB totally made me all emotional! Well, it’s because we are really struck when we put a face to the sacrifice, you know? I know some people will just say it’s just nails, but it’s a very fitting mani to remember your uncle. ❤
Thank you Cynthia. It means a lot to me (no hyperbole here) that you would say such a lovely thing. 🙂
Thanks sweetie, Love your passion.
