Guest Post from The Nailasaurus: Let Me See Your Peacock!

Hey everyone! Whilst I'm off sunning myself in Italy, The Nailasaurus has kindly offered to do a guest post for me. I'm absolutely honoured to have her on my blog. Whilst Sammy is now a great friend of mine, she was my original inspiration for starting my blog (not sure if she knows that actually but it's true!) and so it's a bit like having blogging royalty posting on my blog! I'll let her explain the nails to you:

There’s no doubt that Peacocks are one of nature’s most majestic and beautiful creatures. Those iridescent feathers and that magnificent plume are the perfect inspiration for some nail art. Thanks to a stamping plate, I’ve got the pattern down but found it a bit tricky to mimic the peacock colouring on my nails this time around. I think it’ll take a couple more tries until I’ve got it nailed.

For this nail art, I used piCture pOlish Swagger as my base colour and stamped on the feather design using W7 Purple Paradise. Purple Passion is a metallic purple shade but stamped over Swagger, it looks bright indigo – I like it!

The stamping design is from MoYou Stamping Plate Tropical 06.

On my ring and pinky fingers, I topped Swagger with Essence Only Purple Matters.

It’s all topped off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl.

 Thankyou again Sammy! I absolutely love these nails and I hope you all do too!
