The classic Aussie flag mani. They are everywhere this time of year down under, but I'm pleased to say I think these ones are my best ever.
Of course they are way too perfect for them to be free handed or stamped, again I used some Billy's Australiana Collection nail stickers, but this time they work awesome compared to the Koalas and Kangaroos yesterday.
I did three things different.
- I used a base of nail polish instead of putting the sticker on my bare nail. I used Cult Nails Time Traveler for the perfect dark navy base.I think the base meant it didn't matter if I didn't get the positioning perfect.
- I used tweezers to place the stickers. Because of the fine tweezer touch, I didn't end up with my fingers sticking to the stickers whilst I was trying to apply them.
- I did a final top coat using Gelicious Ulta Glaze top coat gel polish. The gel top coat made them look glossy and perfect and also meant they lasted without any chips.
I also used on of the Billy's Australiana Collection rhinestone stickers of the Austrlaian Flag to bling up a spare clear iPhone case that I had. It made the perfect nail prop.
Have any other Aussies seen the Billy's Australiana Collection of stuff at their local dollar shop?
