Aussie Nails Monday Round-up: Rainbow/Mardi Gras Special Edition


The Sydney Mardi Gras Festival is one of the biggest gay pride festivals in the world. While the famous parade isn't til March 2nd, many festival events are already happening around Sydney. Conveniently, the theme this week for the Aussie Nails Monday nail art challenge was rainbow. Here's a selection of rainbow nail art which might give you some inspiration if you want to celebrate this event!



Gorgeous glittery pastel rainbows by Chantelle of A Polished Prance:


Erin of ErinZi's Nails also went with rainbow stripes - she also has a handy tutorial here. Rainbow glitter makes a great, easy accent nail!


Something a little different - a laser tape manicure with rainbows peeking through black by Kate of Pretty Polish Please. Our next post will have tips on tape manicures - stay tuned!


Some ladies from Instagram also happened to be featuring rainbow nail art this week! These blingy rainbow glitter nails are by Rylee of Wicked Nails (@wickednails on IG) - they'd be eyecatching even in the dark.


Valesha of Peachy Polish (@valesha on IG) created these gorgeous rainbow watercolour nails.


If rainbow nail art is a bit too fiddly for you, maybe some celebratory nail polish might be more suitable. BYS has a Mardi Gras collection available - these are glittery nail polishes which can add some festive bling to your nails.
