Use a white gel polish as my base. After curing buff the shine off.
I placed the nail tips together and just started working on the body of the peacock since I wanted him to be in the center of my design. I used a dark blue, light blue, and a teal color.
Next I started on placing the feathers on the nail tips. I started off with making small purple dots around the tips followed by a ring of light blue then a bright green was added.
After creating the "eyes" of the feathers I went in and made light strokes to simulate the wispy feather look.
Then continued with the purple I used earlier in the "eye" in light stokes to help fill in the open areas.
Then I added brighter looking "eyes" using a bright pink, bright orange and a silver to bring more pops of color.
Outlined his body with some black and finished his crown using the same blue, light blue, purple, and teal. And then doting yellow at the top.
I went back in with white to add some highlights through the feathers in light strokes and added more around his eye.
After adding white I added some black throughout the feathers to give him more contrast and added small white dots to help complete my piece.
After adding the final touches I used a gel polish top coat to finish my look.
