Australia Day Nails

Happy Australia Day! I'm not actually going anywhere to celebrate the day, but I am proudly Australian. 

Our family will have a laid back BBQ tonight, which is a typical Aussie thing to do, isn't it.


Of course, I couldn't let the day go by without showing you some nail looks I created over the past couple of weeks.

I attempted a waterfall mani, beginning with a gold base colour, then using a thin brush to paint on strokes, using yellow and green polish.

Another look, I used a sheer nude, then green and yellow swirled through a white tip.

Finally, I tried a reverse gradient with gold and green holo polishes. This is where you begin with a gradient. Then nail striping tape to create the desired lines. Apply another gradient over top, only in reverse, then while wet remove the tape. 

I hope you have a wonderful day!

    1. I hope you had a wonderful Australia Day, hun. Omg, yes, holos would have to be my favourite finish :)

  2. Happy (belated) Australia Day!

    Love all three, I didn't have much time to do anything this year...there's always next year! Love the holos, they're my favourite way to wear something different without the hassle that comes with glitter removal. :)
