Green Sparks or Peacock Feathers

Green sparks is my name for this mani, and peacock feathers is L's name. Either way, I really really liked this one! It was even prettier on my fingers than it looks in the pictures. I liked just wiggling them around and watching the light play on the green glitter.

The base color is Barielle Aura Angora, and the black I used is Sinful Shine Dark Room, but I'm not sure what I used for the green glitter. I have several of those I might have chosen from. It could have been Zoya Ivanka or Nubar Greener, just off the top of my head. Give me a holler if you want to know the whole list (somewhere between 3-5, I'm thinking) of polishes I have that it might have been.

Now, I am the first to admit that while I'm a fairly good technician when it comes to creative/artistic things, I am not actually creative. Most of my best manicures are copied from someone else - I can't come up with a pretty and aesthetically balanced design if my life depended on it. And this mani is no exception. The amazing Liloo did these two manicures that I shamelessly copied from:


Aren't they amazing?! They both link to her blog, since I can't find the individual posts they came from, but I really enjoy her manicure designs. She does tiny fine lines MUCH better than I can, but I was still happy with my results.


  1. This is pretty! I like the green in it.

    1. Green's my favorite color, which is why I have *several* sparkly green polishes that I might have used! :)
