MSMD: Peacock feathers

I don't know about you but I have been loving the Peacock trend lately.  It's everywhere, clothing, jewelry, home decor, and just the general color scheme is HUGE right now.  I have been wanting to do peacock feather nails for a while so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use a tutorial that I had pinned on pinterest a while back for Monkey See Monkey Do Monday! :)  

I couldn't do a peacock mani without using my most favorite polish in the whole wide world, Orly Sweet Peacock.  I also used Zoya Ivanka, Sally Hansen Golden-I, Klean Colors Metallic Purple and NYC Skin Tight Denim. 

I used Ivanka as my base on my accent nails, then put Golden-I on the tip, then I took a small striper paint brush and Skin Tight Denim and did the feather outline.  I took the same brush and Sweet peacock and did accents on the feather outline and a small design on the gold tip and added a small dot of Metallic purple on the tip.  Skin Tight Denim is the polish on my pinky, middle and thumb. 

I used this tutorial from Hey, Nice Nails

I have really been enjoying participating in Monkey See Monkey Do, it's been fun.  Be sure to check out the other participants below.  :)  TTFN and XOXO
