I have always loved peacock feathers…the color and arrangement of the eyes, the bold delicacy. I tried to do peacock nails about 6 months ago when I started doing nail art…and they were awful.
As an entry in a contest, however, I decided to re-try peacock nails. And I think I succeeded.
Unfortunately, my right hand was the victim of 4 broke nails (really, everything but my pinky) as the product of bowling. However, I bowled a 105 (one of my personal bests. I am terrible at bowling) so I don’t feel too bad!
I decided to combine two styles of peacock…stylized eyes on my accent nail (with a base of A England – Saint George), and feathers on my other nails. Which style do you like better?
- Light green: Nail Art – Green
- Dark green: A England – Saint George
- Teal: Petites Color Fever – Figi
- Light blue: Wet n’ Wild (megalast) – I Need a Refresh-Mint
- Dark blue: A England – Tristam
- Gold: Maybelline (color show) – Bold Gold
My thumbs got blow-ups of the eye of the feathers. I should probably have made the eyes bigger on all my fingers, but I didn’t want to overwhelm the fingers in gold!
Then I just went nuts with photos. Sorry! I just realllly love peacock feathers 😀
Monday is gonna be good with these on 🙂
