OMD July 30 Day Nail Art Challenge – Day 27 Nautical

I love the water! Even though my zodiac sign says my element is Air I feel like I have to be in the water whenever chance permits. I did get the idea for this from someone else’s art, where they used a pale pink to show the sand I used a vibrant gold.

OMD July 31 Day Nail art challenge Day 6 DuoChrome

Not sure if this is a true duochrome, but this is the only polish that I have that comes close, in certain light it looks green or blue. I tried a butterfly nail art this time as I have seen so many and thought they all were so pretty.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Jewel Tones

So far so good keeping strong on posting every day , geez it’s only been 2, but with my record I probably will start lagging soon . Todays challenge was Jewel Tones. Immediately th0ught of this polish I have called Scarab it is a gorgeous blue green polish by Sally Hansen. I was struggling what to do with it though. I remember I used it 2 Halloweens ago for my peacock nails so decided to do peacocks again ( it’s a addiction with those birds I tell ya).

I just got my decal stickers I order off of Amazon it came with 2 sheets of different kinds of bird feathers. I tried to use a green peacock feather, but it blended in too well with my polish so I went for the white peacock feather. I liked it, but thought it was too blah so I added a purple gem to the corner off my nail and was satisfied.

Here is scarab color on its own :

Let me see your Peacock….

So for Halloween this year I saw this awesome Halloween costume that was a peacock. The upside it had a flowing tail, and stand up peacock feathers, the downside was it was $137. After some financial advice from the boyfriend and co-workers I decided to make one on my own. I will have picks for that later but I do have the nail design I decided to do.I did a base coat of Salley Hansen Scarab,then I did a drop from the nail polish brush of  Pure Ice Magnetic Totally Amp, next on top of that Ruby Kisses Neon Green, and finally on top of that Ruby Kisses Regaled Out Blue. For a top coat I used Ruby Kisses Crazy Night Out.
