Lemme see your peacock ;)

Today's title is inspired by the Katy Perry song- Peacock.. and so I did a peacock tail-like mani with one of my new bundle monster plates...

For this mani I used OPI- Suzi Loves Cowboys as my base color and then I stamped with China Glaze- Midnight Kiss and Revlon- Golden

I was trying to go for a really opaque gold image stamped onto the dark brown (kind of like the effect of China Glaze-Millenium on OPI Russian Navy in my Midnight Dots Mani) so I kind of tested it out by swiping a layet of Suzi loves cowboys onto a plastic sheet and then swiping the other 2 colors on top..I liked the effect but it didnt turn out as opaque as I would like it..

I started with 2 coats of OPI's Suzi Loves Cowboys
Then I used the peacock-like design on BM-212 to stamp

I stamped 4 of my fingers (not the thumb) with China Glaze Midnight Kiss but I only stamped on my outer half of the nail to give it sort of like an exaggerated tip effect..
and for my thumb I used Revlon- Golden... I think I liked the midnight kiss more just because the shimmer of the midnight kiss was still very visible where the Golden was more of a dull finish...

Voila!Pin It


  1. wow i love this, would love to see a brighter combo, like blue and green (as in peacock colours) :)

  2. oOo good idea! I think I'll try that the next time I have spare time... I'm thinking of using the sally hansen chrome pens I have (i have one in green) and maybe a navy color...will definitely try it out..thanks for the suggestion
