Beginner Peacock Design
Fashion trends and beauty styles are often inspired by the beauty of nature. Peacock nail art is a perfect example of a beautiful nail design that was inspired by nature.
The male peacock’s feathers inspire because of their vibrant colors and simple yet sophisticated design. To match this through nail art can be difficult and maybe that is why there are so many nail designs out there for peacock feather nail art.
This particular design fits into the more simple category because we don’t all have a professional set of nail art tools to use.
Peacock Nail Art Supplies Needed
This design is done using shellac. Shellac is a system of nail polish/gel that was created by CND. Below is the exact list of all the supplies I used to create this peacock nail art.
- Shellac Purple Purple Polish
- Shellac Ice Cappuccino Polish
- Shellac Hotski To Tchotchke Polish
- Regular Nail Polish Brush
- UV Curing Lamp
- Shellac Base Coat
- Shellac Top Coat
- 99% Isopropyl Alcohol
- Cotton Balls
Peacock Nail Art Steps
First, apply a thin layer of the base coat and cure for 10 seconds.
Second, apply a thin layer of the blue polish over the whole nail. Cure for 2 minutes.
Third, make a teardrop shape in the middle of the nail with the gold polish.
Fourth, apply a big purple dot in the middle of the teardrop to represent the eye of the peacock feather.
Fifth, cure for 2 minutes and finish off the top with a swipeof alcohol to remove the sticky residue.
Sixth and final step is to apply a thin top coat, cure for two minutes. After the final coat is cured you need to wipe the nails with 99% isopropyl alcohol in order to remove the sticky residue.
Enjoy your perfect set of peacock nails on all your nails or just one peacock accent nail.
