Being that today is 9/11, I found it only fitting to do a memorial design to the places attacked on this day 9 years ago. My family and I have always been extremely patriotic- nearly everyone is either active duty or a veteran. My brother to this day is active duty. I won’t bore you with my story of what I remember when I found out what had happened (besides, telling you would make you realize how young I was) but I will say this; it was a terrible loss of life for the United States and I hope those 2996 souls are resting in peace, even those of the hijackers because even though they causes such devastation, you have to wonder what they were thinking.
Today’s design wasn’t about being elaborate, but rather about getting my point across.
For this manicure, I used a coat of OPI’s Natural Nail Base Coat to start. I used Sally Hansen’s Rapid Red, Orly’s La Playa, Sally Hansen’s Lavender Cloud, Maybelline’s Summer Splash, Sinful Colors Black on Black, Orly’s Enchanted Forest, and a mix of the black and white for the gray. I topped off with two coats of Seche Vite.
This is a memorial for ALL three locations that were hit- the twin towers in NYC, the Pentagon, and Flight 93 which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Rest in Peace- we will never forget you or what happened that day.
