I wanna see your peacock!

Hi loves! Today I've got something great to show you - at least I thought this manicure was fabulous! I received some more things from Born Pretty Store to review and I couldn't wait to create a look with these beautiful gold marquise shape studs

They quickly inspired me to do a "peacock" manicure, though pretty abstract haha! I hope you still like it :). I started with 2 coats of H&M Lady Luck. I keep telling myself this is close enough to Chanel Azure so I don't need that one. I haven't compared them side by side though.. after it dried, I taped of my nail and painted the tips with CND Urban Oasis, a onecoater teal. I liked the contrast already but wanted something to pull the colors together. I put down a strip of clear on the middle of each border and put down the studs! Press them down, seal with topcoat and you are done!

Born Pretty Store sells a lot of great nailart products, the studs I used cost $5,83 and the bag holds quite a few studs (no, I didn't count them - you can reuse them though!). With the code DELJ61 you get 10% discount on any order!




What do you think of these studs, and how would you use them?

    This mani is really pretty, but I have to disappoint you - it's nothing close to Chanel Azure. Azure is a very blue leaning turquoise and it's such a pretty colour. I hesitated a long time, but am really happy for spluring on it!! The polish you're wearing looks more like Samba from Dior, but I think it's still too green to be dupe for that.

    Now you know how I felt when I went to Chanel only to get Taboo, but in the end simply couldn't resist to buy Azure as well. It's well worth it, though - so go and grab it before it's sold out :p

  15. This manicure reminds me of some sort of an ancient lock. The way you placed the struds, perfectly between the two colours.... *____* I'm always mind-travelling :D



    BTW this manicure is awesome!
