I hope everyone had a wonderful Australia Day!
We hosted a BBQ bash, and then headed up to Big River for a camping weekend away! :)
I had ideas in my head for lovely Australia Day themed nails, but underestimated how much preparation I would need to do for the BBQ and how time-consuming it would be! I do this every single time, and end up rushing to the shower just as guests are starting to arrive.
I've had to switch my photo-taking hand, due to a nail-breakage injury that my regular model has suffered :(
The initial plan was to do up a stencil for the Union Jack on the thumb, and another for little stars that would make up the Southern Cross on each nail. After a few attempts at getting the base colours perfect, only to ruin them during the preparation process for the party I gave up and just used an old bottle of OPI glitter that I found stashed away (red, blue and silver mixture - perfect colours!) and painted the Union Jack freehand.
Not quite as I'd hoped, but still received plenty of compliments from my party guests! :)
How did you spend your Australia Day?
