My home town of Canberra has been painting the town green this week, because the Canberra Raiders have made it into the NRL Grand Final tomorrow. For my American readers, that's our equivalent of a football team making it to the Superbowl.

Canberra last won the NRL Premiership 25 years ago, so we are well due for a win.  All around town this week people have been making all sorts of things green. Green sausages, green pastry on the meat pies, green bread, green coffee froth on top of your cappuccino, the Telstra Tower and other city monuments are lit up with green lights, anyway you get the idea. Literally painting the town green!

Back in 2012 The Canberra Raiders made it to one of the elimination semi-finals, but lost. I did Raiders nail art back them too, and I'm glad to say that I think this one, whilst very similar, is much neater.  I printed out another water decal for the team logo, and freehanded the other stripes.  The pinky finger represents the local saying of "We bleed green".

Good luck boys and GO RAIDERS!
