I Hear It's Hot Down Under


Day 102

:-D So for years (since my first trip to vegas before I moved here in 2005, to be exact), I've had a love affair with the best thing to come out of Australia besides Heath Ledger, Australian male revue... the Thunder From Down Under! Don't get me wrong, I'm not usually big on the typical male stripper type, but something about the trifecta of ass, abs, and accent gets me every time. :-P Honestly, I think it's the accent most of all. Aussie accents never fail to make me swoon. These guys are always a fun show to watch, with backflips, stripping, dancing, and lots of grins, they definitely know how to make a gal feel special when you talk to 'em too. Today's nails are dedicated to those hunks from down under, even those that keep their clothes on for a living, though they aren't NEARLY as fun. ;) So next time you're in Vegas, send me an email, and we'll ALL go see some bare Aussie skin, it's definitely worth the cost of admission!! :-D

The nails:



I used Ultra Pro in Blue Blaze as a base, with American Apparel Cotton for the stars, etc, and China Glaze Salsa for the red. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

A pic of me, Matty (left), and Dave (right). :-P Pardon my goofy hair, I have a bad habit of tucking it behind my big ol' ears.



Some pictures from the PG-13 show at the expo:

  1. OMG. Don't even get me started on the men from Oz....divine.
    The one on your right is pretty hot. I always get comp tix but never end up going cuz I'm not big on male dancers either but you may have convinced me to hit up the show next time I'm there.
    Wonderful nails chica! Love the blue!

  5. You're not the only one with a love for Heath Ledger, OMG. Whenever I saw him in "10 Things I Hate About You" and "A Knight's Tale"......OH MAN! And yes, it is most definitely the accent. Gerard Butler gets me too, but he's just flat out damn gorgeous! lol.

  7. How apt for Australia Day on Tuesday.

    Gah! I'm sick of Australian men, give me European men anytime. I'm probably sick of them because i'm Australian. Ha.

  10. OOOOHHHH, now there's a delight! Not bad at all! I have become positively hooked on Australian Rules Football, partially because of the 'gifts' of said Australian Males. (That, and the game just ROCKS... it's so fast paced and interesting-they are moving and scoring almost constantly- no huge time outs, nice uniforms, no padding, no worries, mate!) If you can catch a game, it's highly worthwhile. (for sport fanatics, and butt fanatics!) Not to objectify the men, or anything. Because I truly appreciate what they do. Truly. Go Geelong!

  12. I was debating whether to break this news to you or not... hmmm. They are not actually from Australia. They are actors with fake accents. Still appreciated though. I love the nails.

  13. Meh, makes no difference really, they're still fun to watch, and if the accent's fake, it still works for me. :-P They don't really need to talk anyway.

    I have only been to 2 shows, and they were both before i moved here, haven't seen them actually PERFORM in years. :-)

    Nancy Magoo- send some my way, I'd be happy to take a few Australian men off your hands for ya. :-P Dunno, every Australian guy I've ever met has this charm about them, it's completely inexplicable. Honestly though, most accents on men are sexy, with the exception of the loogie-hocking sounding ones, southern accents, and Minnesotan or Canadian. :-P (no offense to any of you that this describes... :-P) oooh!.. or the angry-sounding languages, those aren't so sexy either.
