... Tour Down Under Nails ...

Every year around Australia Day there is a massive bike race in the areas surrounding Adelaide called the Tour Down Under.  It makes an appearance in my part of SA at least once in the week and it depends on your views on cycling to whether it's a great thing or annoying!  Most of the towns put on a show and make it a carnival atmosphere which does make it a good day out even though if you blink, the cyclists have already past you and are heading along the road. Also if you are planning to be somewhere you need to keep an eye on the rolling road closures as they really can muck up your plans!


I've chosen to use the beautiful Lilypad Lacquer Sweet as a Peach for the base for today. One because it's a holographic and who can resist (!!) and two because the leader of this race is given a "Ochre" coloured jersey instead of a yellow one.


I've stamped the bikes using the Cheeky Jumbo Plate 7 "Home Sweet Home" using China Glaze Frostbite. I know they don't use Pennyfarthings in a professional cycling race but hey! It was as close as I could get.


And here's an inside shot to show that this polish is really pretty even indoors. I promise I'll upload some unstamped swatches in the future with a proper review so you can see the true beauty!
