LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

Peacock inspired nails

I was out on the razz last Saturday for the first time in a while.

It was only a chinese meal and few drinks, but I thought, as they were all the same length for a change, I would prettify my nails for the occasion.

I wore jeans and a black top with a light jacket that had a peacock feather motif. This gave me the inspiration for the nails – I went with a clear base coat all over, a dark green and a shiny teal over 2/3 of the nail and gold done with a long haired brush to simulate the feathery edge.

It’s not a perfect feather, but I think it is reminiscent – a peacock feather in abstract if you like.

Someone asked me if they were nail wraps, which in our house is like being told your cakes are ‘just like shop bought’ as a compliment 😀

  1. This is amazing! It’s going to take me a hundred years to be able to do it! You got talent!

  2. Firstly, I love the nails! You’ll have to do something fancy on mine for me sometime, anything artistic is not my forte (as you know!)

    Secondly, homemade cakes are always better than shop bought! And speaking of homemade cakes, please tell me how to make those biscuits you brought to Guides on Thursday! They were yummy!

    • Thank you .
      I will have to have a think about the nails as yours a teenier than mine!
      Of course I will let you have the 1970s children recipe for the biscuits-it is my pleasure to share these things 🙂
