Peacock Inspired Nails



I like to look at my nails as of that being as proud as a peacock. The peacock has such great pride and admirable colours in his feathers that have you attracted to the radiance.

Since growing my nails I take great pride in them, I noticed how many compliments I get and how nice it is, makes me feel attractive - yes my nails do lol.

Currently they are in a state of rehab ''boo'' due to the fact they started to break and I just decided to cut them down a slightly gain the strength back up again.

I saw this on CutePolish via YouTube, fell in love as I was also sent more nail art tools from Born Pretty in the form of 'Dotting Tools' it was a perfect time to make me use them and do something so pretty.


These comes as a 5 piece but each dotting tool has two ends to it with a different sized ball so you can make various sized dots with them. This is the first dotting tool I have ever used and to be honest I'm just getting use to it -- you must be thinking how hard can it really be -- but if you want a bigger sized dot to the biggest sized ball you have it's making that perfect dot without making it gain a disadvantage.  As I said I've never had these before so I can't compare them to any other brand but now I'm getting use to them I quite enjoy learning to make my circles.

You can purchase these from the Born Pretty Store

Disclosure : This product was sent to me. I have reviewed this product to my satisfaction. Please read more on this here


On to the tutorial ...


Apply a basecoat I chose : - Save The Nail - Toughen Up Base. Afterwards I applied two coats of China Glaze - Starboard and left to dry. Taken my biggest dotting tool, I use China Glaze - 2030 and made my circles I had to dot it around to enlarge it with practice it becomes easier.


Choosing to do two shades of green H&M's brand of nail polishes are cheap but so lovely to use :- H&M - No Mambo Jambo was applied on top of China Glaze -2030 with the second largest dotting tool.


Sally Hansen Insta-Dri : - Mint Sprint was applied on top with a small dotting tool


China Glaze - First Mate was used to be the centre eye colour applied with the smallest dotting tool. Taking a toothpick I took H&M - No Mambo Jambo and from the centre of First mate took out the bottom to kind of blend it so to speak. Apply a top coat my choice was Save The Nail - 45 Second Coat and ta-daaaaa.




Thanks for reading ....

Peace & Love
