White Poppies Inspired by @ane_li #sharingtheloveforaneli

Hey everyone! I recently heard the awful news that @ane_li passed away earlier this month. I was very shocked to hear that she is no longer with us, she was so talented and very much respected in the community. We all wanted to pay our respects to Ane Li, and a few nail artists have come together to recreate her designs today, the day of her funeral. I hope Ane Li's family take some small comfort in knowing that we all respected her very much and are sad to see her gone.

I decided to recreate her poppy nails from last November. Most of Ane Li's nails are incredibly detailed and I just didn't feel like I had the skill to do them justice, so I chose a simple but effective design. She created so many beautiful designs, and even the most simple ones are stunning.

I used Barry M - Cotton as my base, then I used Winstonia Berry Wine brushes* for the flowers and stems which were done using MASH - Black and L'Oreal - Coraltria. Finished with a coat of Seche Vite.

I hope this is a good enough tribute to Ane Li's beautiful work



  1. Lovely design!!! Beautiful manicure!

  2. Beautiful tribute nails Alice! <3

  3. Beautiful hommage, dear - they're lovely and perfect. It was such a sad loss :(

  4. I saw these yesterday on Instagram and I fell madly in love. Such a beautiful recreation and tribute. RIP Ane Li.

  5. Such a beautiful tribute in a heartbreaking situation. <3
