My colleague have been flying over to Melbourne the past 3 years to attend the annual Melbourne Cup event. For people who don't know what it is, it's an annual horse racing event held at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne. I know many people turn up dressed in their best. Women attend this event in beautiful dresses, elegant hats or fascinators. The best dressed man and woman stand a chance to win substantial prizes! What I didn't know was that other than the actual Melbourne Cup day, there are lots of other events during the race week. Like Derby Day where it's traditional to wear only black and white (It reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in 'My fair Lady').

For such a special event, I created a set of nails for my friend to match both her black and white dress on Derby Day and the pink dress on Melbourne Cup day.
