Aussie Nails - Sydney Harbour Bridge nail art - take 2

We are one week out from Australia Day, and just like for the last two years, I've decided to have a full week of Australia themed nail art. From Aussie beers to prawns on the barbie, Uluru to the Harbour Bridge, patriotic flags and our beautiful rainbow cash - I've done them all (plus lots more) 

I've tried hard to come up with new ideas this year, with a huge exception for this first mani.  Last year I created one of my most popular designs using a print at home temporary tattoo to create the Sydney Harbour Bridge.  I wanted to revisit that mani and attempt the design using MoYou Tourist 09 Plate.  Using the stamp made it 1000 times easier to create this mani.

I created my blue gradient background using Picture Polish Sky, OPI No room for the blues and Ulta3 Blue Marlin.  The water beneath the bridge is Picture Polish Ocean and Cosmos. I free handed the Opera House onto my index finger and used the MoYou plate to stamp the rest of the Opera House onto my thumb.

I prefer the gradient I created this time, its much smoother and I love the overall cool blue finish to these nails.

Today's Aussie Nails Monday theme is "Australian", so there is going to be lots of Aussie nail around around today, and hopefully for the rest of the week.  If you blog, please share your Aussie themed mani in the inlinkz below.  If you are on Instagram please use the hashtag #ANausday so I can check them all out.
