Peacock inspired Nails

As you guys know, I absolutely love doing nails inspired by fashion. A friend and I went to Urban Outfitters this past week and I spotted this peacock shirt and absolutely had to have it. Later on, I realized it would translate really nicely onto my nails!

What I Used:
-Essie Licorice
-Essie Good as Gold
-OPI Dating a Royal (under the glitter)
-Royal Blue Glitter (from Julep)

To apply the glitter, I put on a blue nail polish and before it dried just dipped my finger in the glitter. A problem I noticed is that it “eats” the top coat (as my fellow nail art bloggers would say). Which basically means that when you apply top coat it doesn’t dry to that smooth and shiny finish you usually get – it dries bumpy. I applied 2 coats of top coat and it turned out fine!
