Melbourne Cup Jockey Silks Skittles

Ok, so it's been a week since I posted, but I have a really good reason why. I had a bit of a motorcycle crash on my ride into work last Thursday. I went for a ride in the ambulance for the first time in my life, although the details are a bit hazy cause of the excellent whistle drug thing they gave me.  I was lucky to only break a bit off my tibia in my leg, so I have a cam boot on and have to say off my foot for the next 6 - 8 weeks. What a pain in the rear!

Now I actually have several blog posts that I needed to post over the last week, there was a Twinsie birthday mani, plus a Halloween design of the 26 nail art ideas challenge, so I'll try to catch up on those in the next few days. 

Today I was able to maneuver myself to my nail painting table and did this nail art for Melbourne Cup day. You see it's become a bit of tradition over the last three years to create nail art of my favourite jockey silks, and I didn't want to miss out this year.

I chose my five favourite designs and interpreted them on my nails.  Just like last year I had no luck picking any winners this way, so I think it just shows what an absolute fluke it was the first year to get the trifecta.

These are the silks of the first three horses. How boring, there was no way I was going to choose these!!
