Hello everyone! Sorry it's been a while since my last post! I've been busy preparing myself for the Gold Coast half marathon and now that it's finished I can show you the nails I was sporting and a few before and after shots at the marathon!! I really love running and feel so great when I do it and this being my 2nd half marathon I improved immensely (by 11 minutes to be exact) and I can't wait to do it again next year and do even better!

The nails I chose to wear were inspired by pshiiit. I love this look so so sooo much and knew I wanted to replicate it! It's so awesome and abstract and really unique! I did this nail art a different (and longer way to pshiiit, which I didn't realise until later was going to take me longer.. woops!) I painted all my nails with OPI - Alpine Snow* and used 1 coat of SV to quickly dry it. Then I sponged on a gradient using all Essie polishes (Naughty Nautical, Where's My Chauffer and Bikini So Teeny), then 1 coat of SV. I then applied tape down in a triangle and filled in the space with OPI - Alpine Snow* then topped it with 1 coat off SV. For the thumbs and accent nails I used Orly - Liquid Vinyl* and a thin striper brush to outline the triangles.

Before the Marathon - at 5:30am - Pitch Black!
Me 20m from the finish line - WOO!!
After finishing the marathon! With our medals! YAY!
Thanks for reading everyone and I hope you enjoyed this post!! See you again soon.
