The tri-polish challenge day 17: Peacock nails I


Hello my dears! How are you doing? Today is the 3rd Tuesday of July, and you know what that means? It's time for another Tri-Polish Challenge!! This month the mandatory colours are Blue, Blue, Green. Yes that's right, two shades of blue and one of green. My choices to represent these colours are the following:


Blue: OPI Yoga-ta get this blue, blue: Dior Birds of paradise 794, Green: Mavala Peacock green.
For the first tri-polish mani of July I've decided to try a Peacock design. I was very exited about that and took inspiration from a picture on Pinterest (click here). But the final result was not what I expected and looks nothing like the model! :(






Even if it doesn't look perfect I actually like the final result. For achiving this mani I first painted one coat of Mavala Peacock green in all my nails and then used Maybelline gold n°820 to draw the "eyes" of the peacock feathers, and added concentric "dots" using the Dior polish and then the OPI polish. That was not as I hope it would look. But to make things even worse, I aded some lines with Essence Topping please, holo top coat (allowed).



Well, I do not know what else to say other that even it wasn't what I expected I worn this mani for 6 days! And eventually got used to it, lol.
Let me know your opinion about this mani! And do not forget to check out what the oter lovely ladies have done to their nails!
Love,
Nati

  2. A me piacciono più le tue unghie, di quelle della modella: sono portabilissime e, cosa che mi piace ancora di più, hanno tutte lo stesso pattern. Ottimo lavoro!
