A Spring Inspired NOTD - Australis K-Pop and Island Girl Island Color

7:22 AM

While summer is my total BFF of a season, spring ain't so bad either. It's nice to see all the little signs that warmer weather is on its way - longer daylight hours, beer gardens opening, and the hordes of backpackers airing their pasty, shirtless bodies in the Hyde Park once it gets over 21 degrees.

Oh, and this gorgeous magnolia tree I pass on my way to the farmer's markets to buy salted caramel cheesecake and rhubarb. Check it!

Inspired, I decided to slick on a mani as pretty as these blossoms.

I've previously covered some of the polishes from Australis' Rockstar collection, and the shade used here, K-Pop, is another winner. It's a very pretty purple-leaning candy pink, that's creamy, smooth to apply and opaque in two coats.

I've then upped the pretty with a smudge of this silvery pink glitter from Island Girl Hawaii, that I picked up on my travels there last year. Despite its uninspired name, Island Color is a nice fine glitter that can be built up easily and doesn't feel rough.

Australis Nail Colours retail for A$7.95 each. Island Girl Hawaii polishes are US$2.99 each and you can find them in ABC stores in Hawaii and selected salons in Las Vegas.

Disclaimer: Australis product sent by brand for consideration. They have in no way influenced my review and opinions are my own. It is also my opinion that I would have totally ended up buying these at Priceline anyway because that place is a bad influence, and I'm easily led. See my Disclaimer for more sexy details.
