Nailburgerlar has touched down in Australia! Part of us at least.

I’ve arrived in Sydney (Bret) and went straight for a burger at Grill’d as inspired by this post.

Honestly, not a huge fan. I would say 5/10. Meat overcooked and overseasoned for my taste.

My gorgeous nails are by The Illustrated Nail (done before I left London) and are inspired by the Peter Saville Joy Division cover for Unknown Pleasures.

Are there any Sydney based Burgers and Nails readers who would like to take me out to their favourite burger joint? Message me here or on Twitter and let’s ‘meat’ up for some burgers and nails!

I never do this but, I wanted to do a homage to one of my all time favorite nail art ladies. Sophie Harris Greenslade of The Illustrated Nail. She’s a genius to my eyes. I love everything she does. She truly is an artist with a great eye for design. This is one of my favorite designs from her. If you haven’t seen her work you need to.


Byron again, was in the mood for something quick and assured delicious. 9/10.

That was not the case however for my AMAZING ILLUSTRATED NAILS, by who else? The Illustrated Nail obviously. I drew some inspiration from last time when our Sophie went to see Sophie and got a little banner with ‘burger’ in it, but this time, went a bit more generic and just went with 'meat’.

Check out that roast turkey! It’s turkey on bacon on burger!


WOW! I love LOVE The Illustrated Nail. Look at this mad black and white theme she did for me!

Two burgers for me this week (I was on vacation in Montreal).

1, from Les Folies on Mont Royal. This used to be my favourite place when I lived in Montreal. This time was a real let down. I think I’ve been spoiled recently by amazing burgers in London. It gets a 2. Although I do think you should try this place for the chips and sangria, just give the burger a miss.

2, I had this burger while visiting The Farmhouse in Burlington, VT. An all out 10 and a definite must visit for those passing through Vermont (nobody obviously).

All in what’s important about this post is… SOPHIE FROM THE ILLUSTRATED NAIL IS A GENIUS AND WE LOVE HER!

Love, Nailburgerlar.
