Not only is it my birthday today (yay), but it is also piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013! This year’s blog fest is all about celebrating bloggers and showcasing some amazing nail art, using some gorgeous piCture pOlish shades!
I am excited to be apart of the event for a 2nd year! You can check out my post from last year here.
The three colours that piCture pOlish kindly sent me to use in my nail art, are ‘Wisteria’, ‘Hot Lips’ and ‘Marine’.
It took me a couple of weeks to finally decide on the nail art design that I decided to create, but I finally came up with a Peacock manicure because the Marine shade reminded me of the male peacock’s green/teal feathers.
piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013- Peacock manicure
I used a plain white polish to make the design stand out and a little orange for the beak…everything else was created with the 3 piCture pOlish shades.
For the body, I made a kind of ‘bowling pin’ shape with Marine. Then I painted on teardrop shapes (as the tail) in Wisteria, in an arc cascading over the two outer nails. I finished those 3 nails off by adding a white dot for the eye, Hot lips inside the ‘tail feathers’, a small orange beak and the crest on the peacock’s head.
For the two remaining nails I painted a peacock feather on each, with alternating colours. (purple on the outside & pink on the inside, reversed on the other nail).
If you like the look of any of the shades above, you can purchase them from piCture pOlish now! Or from their network partners. piCture pOlish ship internationally (*some exclusions). Also if you love a good bargain be sure to check out their Everyday deals page.
