22. Animal Themed :
I recently picked up some more Orly colors from their old Birds of a Feather Collection. I loved this collection from 2011… but more importantly, I felt the need to hoard a few more of these old Orly bottles. Have you seen the design of their new bottles? They look so weird and different to me that I want to get my hands on as many of the oldies as possible! For posterity or something!
One of my faves from the Birds of a Feather collection is the blue base I’m wearing here called Sweet Peacock. Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s the most electric aqua blue foil that I’ve ever seen! I’m so glad I added it to my stash!
It seemed fitting to pair this polish with a peacock design. I did 2 coats of Sweet Peacock as my base color. Then I applied some chevron nail guide stickers and painted my tips with another Birds of a Feather Orly called Lucky Duck. The rest of the gold, black, blue and purple accents were done with a dotting tool. It was actually pretty simple! Here’s the colors I used:
blue ♥ Sweet Peacock by Orly
green ♥ Lucky Duck by Orly
gold ♥ Because You’re Worth It by L’Oreal
purple ♥ Eggplant Frost by wet n wild
black ♥ Black Lace Cream by NYC
These peacock nails are fun to wear! I just love colors inspired by nature! Do you own any of these polishes from the Birds of a Feather collection?
