Hey every one, How are you all doing today. I have an easy and interesting design today. I have always been fascinated with Peacock and today’s design is the reflection of that. This Gold and Blue Nails look so awesome. Let’s get straight to the Peacock Nail Art Tutorial.
Items and Tools I Used
- Base Coat
- Nude Nail Polish – Wet n Wild 2% Milk
- Sheer Pearl Glitter Nail Polish – Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquer, 01 Pearl-Plexed Sheer
- Wet n Wild Break the Ice Nail Polish
- Sheer Turquoise Nail Polish – Colorbar Peacock Blue
- Acrylic paint – Gold and Blue Green by Americana
- Rivets Stud Rhinestones
- Nail Art Dotting Tool
- A Paint Brush
- Top Coat
How I did the Nail Design
Start by applying base coat on your nails. Always make sure one coat of polish or one step of the Nail Art is fully dry before moving on to the next. Paint all your nails with the Nude Nail Polish. In this design I have only one layer of the polish as I just wanted to make a smooth base and not to intensify the base color.
Layer a thin coat of the pearl glitter nail polish. As we all know the natural color of nail tips is much different to the nail bed. So cover the nail tips with Wet n Wild Break the Ice Nail Polish just to make the tips more opaque with this shimmery white polish.
Dip your dotting Tool in Gold acrylic paint and make dots following the curve of your cuticle. Using a dotting tool makes the shapes smaller as you go. So in this design I performed the dotting job in two steps. Start by dotting in the middle and go upwards on each direction. In the second step place the dotting tool on the already done middle dot to get uniform size in either side.
With the same dotting tool, take the Blue Green acrylic paint and make dots in the center of gold dots following the same process. Take Blue Green paint on a brush, any brush will do. I used a regular water color brush and make an upside down U shape leaving little space from the dots. Apply the Sheer Turquoise Nail Polish over the blue paint.
Seal the whole design with top coat. Let the nails dry completely. Add Nail Glue and place the gold stud Rhinestones. I used Top Coat for this purpose and the rhinestones didn’t stay long as they are little bigger in size. You need to seal the design with top coat before adding rhinestones as you will be using nail glue. If you want to use clear polish/top coat then again lock the design with Top Coat.
