Glittery Peacock

Here's a design from all things, 
a Christmas ornament. 
I found these peacock ornaments in Walmart
the other week and I absolutely fell in love with them!!
The moment I grabbed them, I just knew I had to
make it into a nail design


Pro Nail Systems Base Coat
Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in - Going Green
L.A.Girls Glitter Addict in - Purge
Model's Own in - Purple Haze 
Milani in - Blue Lightening
So Easy Stripe Rite in - Metallic Gold
Blue Teardrop Rhinestones

On a side note,
as time goes by, 
I am having more and more difficulty
struggling to make a decent design
with my carpal tunnel syndrome.

I refuse to give up my love for nail art. 
Surgery is not an option for me at this time.
I already have braces, but they only do so much. 
If anyone else is struggling with 
similar issues and you have an ointment or technique that 
works for you, please share it with me as I'm 
becoming increasingly frustrated with my mangled hands!

Kleancolor - Chunky Black Holo

 A Grey tinted jelly with multi-sized hex holo glitters
that reflect from 
Red - Orange - Yellow - Green
A single layer over a basic black cream 
and you've got magic on your nails!
My only gripe about this polish is that
for whatever reason, Kleancolor's
jelly's take AGES to dry.

The trick is to use extremely thin coats and
wait at least 30 minutes between coats.
I know, ridiculous, right?
For some shades I wouldn't bother, but this one
it's worth the slow process.
