Australia Day Nails!! Aussie Aussie Aussie...

Happy Australia Day guys!

Just a quick post to share my nails for Australia Day this year :)

I ordered the amazing water decals on my ring and middle finger from eBay and love how they look with the other nails. Decals are one of the easiest ways of having amazing nails. They're basically a tattoo for your nail :) 

I matched them with the Aboriginal flag and some Aboriginal inspired artwork since it's their country. My thumb still has the Australian flag on it from my Australian Soccer nails since I thought it would look amazing with this design too.

My favorite though is my index nail. You can't really tell, but the dots are SOO tiny and there are so many of them on there!

Have a great Australia Day, my fellow Aussies!

My Australia Nails For The Soccer!

Happy Friday night everyone!

Today's nails are from last night but I had a CRAZY night at the football and didn't get home till midnight, so I went straight to bed.

My boyfriend bought us tickets to go and watch the Asian Cup semi final last night in Brisbane. He used to play football professionally before we met and I had never seen a game in person before so I was super excited to go.

It was insaaaaane!! The atmosphere in the stadium was incredible and the China fans were so high energy. A Chinese billionaire bought 5,000 tickets to the game and gave them away to Chinese supporters to help increase the numbers so the stadium was about 70% Aussie fans and 30% China fans. And the China fans had drums and were chanting the whole time. It was incredible to see their support even till the end whistle. 

Australia ended up winning 2-0 so it was worth going!

Anyway, on to my nails!

Hand Painted Purple Rose & Tutorial

Hey guys! 

Just a quick post today to show you these awesome hand painted roses and a video tutorial to show you how easy they are to do.

I used polish to do the roses as it's not too hard for me to do roses with polish, however if you are a beginner then it's best to start with acrylic paint as it's a lot easier to manage on the nail as polish dries faster and 'gloopier', if that's even a word! You can see below in the video tutorial what I mean.

Water Spotted Nail Design

Hi guys!

This is an easy technique that you only need an alcohol based liquid spray to create the pattern in nail polish in the water.

Look how cool they look! And they're super easy to do, as shown in the tutorial below!

2014 Favorite Nail Designs


I can't believe 2014 is over already! I swear it was March 5 weeks ago..

Since I usually post my monthly favourite nails I thought a yearly wrap up had to be done too, and it was so great to go back and see the start of my instagram and blogging nail journey and the mani's I created when I was starting to post them seriously and more 'professionally' on Instagram in February.

I tried to limit the amount I picked, but you guys, it was hard to pick less than 20!! Lol! so many of them I love.  Anyway, this was the lot that I ended up with.

My top faves have to be the Daria nails, the SOA nails, the nautical ones and the green and pink flowers.

Did you have a favorite? Let me know down below :)
