Quick Peacock nail for my daughter!

base: Orly Gold Rush (probably had this 10 years)
trim: black nail art brush
purple: Orly Velvet Rope
green: OPI Jade is the New Black
blue glitter: WetNWild Teal of Fortune

 Oh, check this out about "old" polish:


  1. Whoo! Good work, very cute! I like the colors!

  2. This is very pretty, although quick question: how did the 10 year old Orly fair? Was it funky/goopy/runny?

  3. Lynn, thanks! Actually, it is unchanged, kinda thin- I only did one coat because I thought I was going to cover most of the nail, like the thumbs, but she opted for a simpler design- I think it need two, but it's lighter with one- polish was fine :)

  4. Thanks for the quick reply :) Hmm, i do have a couple of older nail polishes (5-10 years), but i've always been afraid to use them and i can't bear to toss them out. Perhaps i shall trying to fraken with them!

  5. they are probably perfectly fine, use a little thinner if necessary, but the chemicals won't allow anything bad to grow in them-

  6. This is so creative! I am totally going to try this when my nails get a wee bit longer.
