Peacock Feathers Take Two

It should be pretty obvious by now that I love the look of feathers.  I hate birds...but I like feathers.  I've done real feathers on my nails (here) and painted (here) before, but I felt I needed to give the peacock look one more revisit.

This didn't turn out quite like I had hoped.  I like the eye, but the wispy ends just didn't end up looking right.  This was the picture I was drawing from, but nails are such small canvases it gets difficult to do anything super intricate.

Polishes used:
  • MAC Jade Dragon
  • Zoya Richelle
  • Orly Halley's Comet
  • Sephora by OPI Caught With My Khakis Down


  1. I like it! I know what you mean about nails being small canvases lol it makes things slightly more difficult. From far they look more like feathers but up close the design is pretty cool too. It reminds me of some kind of ancient symbol or something. I really like it!

    Huh, I guess it does look like weird hieroglyphics or something. Thanks for the feedback!

  3. I hope that didn't sound bad in any way because I really didn't mean it badly at all. I actually think it looks really good. It is definitely better than I could do. I had major issues with trying to do details on my nubbletts today.

    Oh no, not bad at all, I understood what you meant. Thanks!
