I've got a day late Monday Blues to share with you today. I planned on posting this yesterday but here in Canada it was a holiday and it was absolutely fabulous outside. I spent my day lounging by the pool reading a book and could not tear myself away! So sorry this is a day late!
A few weeks ago the lovely Amber of Amber Did It! said that Orly's Sweet Peacock was her favourite go to polish so since it's been sitting in my drawer for a few months I decided to get my act together and use it! I needed to incorporate some nail art with it so decided to go with some peacock themed accent nails.
I started off with 2 coats of Sweet Peacock on my index, middle and pinky nails and put 2 coats of NYC French White Tip on my thumb and ring finger. Sweet Peacock is such an amazing blue foil from the 2011 Birds of a Feather Collection. There are a few rougher bits throughout it, which makes the polish look a little rougher without top coat and those silver pieces stand out to make this polish something extra special. Amber was right, this polish is incredible!
For my accent nails I used Sweet Peacock, Essence's Wanna Be Your Sunshine, the Blue Color Club Chrome striper and the Green Color Club Chrome Striper. I used dotting tools and the striper brushes to create the peacock design. I used a dotting tool to place the yellow and green rhinestones alternating down the middle of my nail.
I loved this look so much!! Peacock designs are getting pretty popular right now and I might have a couple other designs up my sleeve! ;)
This was so fun to wear, and I got a lot of compliments on how shiny and eye catching it was! I love foil polishes, they always look so awesome in my opinion. So big thanks to Amber for helping inspire this mani :) Actually Amber posted some kickass Peacock nails yesterday! Go check them out!
What do you think of the peacock trend? Like my nails?
Have you tried anything like this lately?
