I had always wanted to do peacock nails and first saw the plate being used when I was searching YouTube for peacock nail art. This is the video I first came across using the plate. I also saw a blog post by Gwenn at Sugar Nails using this plate too.
I then painted two coats of Peacock Green (perfect name for this mani) by Models Own. I added a 2true top coat then I stamped using Nail Supreme's gold and the BM212 plate. I then used a dotting tool to place alternating dots of Maybelline MNY in 553 and Barbara Daly's Carnival. And topped all of this off with a Rimmel top coat.
All the tutorials and blog posts I saw using this stamp all stamped with a silver polish and I couldn't understand why. Peacocks have a very warm, golden shimmer through their feathers so I decided to use gold and I definitely think it was the right decision.
I received sooooo many compliments for this mani and it is definitely my favourite of all the manis I have ever done, so this will probably be a regular appearance on my nails!
Thanks for reading!
