Nail Art Studio: Pretty as a Peacock

by NAILS Staff | August 19, 2019

1. Apply a white base using gel-polish or hard gel and cure.

2. Using a turquoise color, make a dot. Use purple to make a line around the dot, then add a line of turquoise around that. Leave uncured.

3. Use a brush to pat the colors so they start thinning and blend them out into the shape of a feather. Cure after you get your desired look.

4. Draw a line through the bottom of the feather using a thin liner brush. Draw thin lines in a half-circle to create the effect of the thin peacock herls [barbs]. Add the small herls on the bottom. Cure, then apply top coat.
