Julep Annie Peacock Inspired Manicure

This manicure was inspired by the brightness of a peacock and my need to use blue polish. Blue is one of my favourite polish colours but I don't seem to reach for it too often, whenever I do though I always end up loving it. I really should use blue more often!

Julep describes Annie as an "electric blue topaz creme". The formula on this one was excellent, I used two coats, but if I would have been careful I could have gotten away with one. It's very pigmented and levelled itself out very well. I used Bundle Monster plate number 212 and Konad white for the peacock feather looking design. Then to add a bit of interest I added some small round pink rhinestones from Cheeky Beauty to my ring fingers.

I love the feeling of the rhinestones on the polish. I spent the whole time I was wearing this mani running my fingers over them!

Thanks for reading!

      I passed on Annie on the regular monthly subscription, but ended up getting it in a mystery box. I'm so glad I did as soon as I got it I was like, why did I not get this the first time around again?!
