Happy weekend, everyone! We're off on a mini road trip up the coat today and I thought I'd share another mani before we go.

This manicure is for a book called Torn by David Massey. I really like the speckled orange look to the cover as well as the gorgeous white poppy.

I started with 2 coats of Zoya Jancyn, then I used a make up sponge to dab on three colours: dark orange (China Glaze oh How Street It Is), red (WnW Red Red), and white (WnW French White Creme).

I used a small bevel brush and WnW French White Cream to paint on the poppy. For the centre of the poppy I used WnW Black Creme, a dotting tool and a fan brush. 

And finally for the barbed wire I used a Glam Nails nail art pen in jet black. I drew on two straight lines that crossed towards one corner and then added on the knotted spikes.

And that's it for today! I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend :)
