Peacock Feather Nails - Holo on glitter!

I loved my last peacock feather manicure and I wanted to recreate that look but with a MoYou London image plate. And this is how it looks ...

This picture above is in natural light.

I used the same polishes as the last time. I used Barry M Navy as the base and then added the glitter polish, Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Mermaid's Tale on top. I stamped the peacock feathers with the holographic polish, Color Club Harp on It. The image plate is MoYou London Plate 03 from the Pro Collection. The images on their non-XL plates just about fit my nails and I had to double stamp it on my thumb.

This photo is with indoor lighting...

The way the holographic polish shimmered in the light is simple stunning. The last time I stamped with a silver polish and although I love that polish I stamped with, plain silver just does not have the shimmer of multiple colours like real peacock feathers. But the holo really brings this stamped image to life!

I even managed to get these last couple of pics in the sun. But this was on the second day, so you may see slight tip wear.

    1. Thank you! I think my photos have not done it justice - but it proved very difficult to capture the detail and the shimmer at the same time! :-)

  4. This looks gorgeous, I love the holo-over-glitter effect! The peacock stamping matches the color of the glitter polish perfectly!

    I was worried about the non-XL MoYou plates fitting my nails, but if they fit your long nails (I'm so jealous haha) they should definitely fit my short nubs :P

    1. Thanks! :-) The images on the non-XL plate just about fit mine (other than the thumb) - it also means more images per plate! :-)
