Remembrance/Veterans Day Nails & Video Tutorial

In Flanders' field 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 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 falling 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' field. 

On the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, a minutes' silence is observed and dedicated to those soldiers who died fighting to protect the nation. 

This mani was inspired by @christabellnails and dedicated to those no longer with us.

And the video tutorial.

Base is OPI 'Alpine Snow', I sponged LA Girl 'Fairytale' over and did the rest in acrylic paint. Topped with @glistenandglow1 HK Girl Top Coat. Song is Dixie Chicks - Travelin' Soldier.
