Peacock feather nail art tutorial

Monday, April 14, 2014

I have a fun, shimmery and elegant tutorial for you today - Peacock feathers! I knew I wanted to sport Peacock feathers on my nails so I went searching for ideas. I found several and kind of combined them. The one that really inspired me was from the Nails Magazine Pinterest page.

Let me show you how I did it. I don't think all the steps are needed. But I will show you all of them.

Here are the polishes I used.


Start off with a base color of Orly Sweet Peacock or another metallic blue.


Then make the center part of the feather. I used Milani Signature Gold.



I used Zoya Meg to outline the gold in a light metallic green.



Then I outlined that with Milani Black Swift.



Then I painted "wisps" of the feathers with Milani Black Swift. This is just the start of the feathery part.


Then I added more wisps using Milani White and Orly Mysterious Curse.


Then I added a light blue oval in the center of the gold using Orly Snowcone.



Then I added a dot of dark blue in the bottom of the light blue oval using Orly Royal Navy. I topped it off with a top coat of HK Girl. It didn't smear the design at all!

I really like the way they turned out. If I had to change anything I would make the wisps longer I think.


A couple of these products were previously sent to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
