Turquoise and Gold Peacock

The photographs I have of this manicure do not even come close to capturing the beauty of it. What started out as a rather simple manicure (Julep Lena,) was transformed into greatness with the addition of the gold peacock stamp.

I was taking a break from work last week and getting some sun on the deck all the while experimenting with settings on my camera. I was attempting to show you the gold shimmer that is in Julep Lena, but couldn't capture it. In bright sunlight the gold shimmer seems to be brought out by the gold stamp of a peacock feather.

The stamp is by Nail Craze and stamped in Essie 'Good as Gold.' The peacock is a large stamp, so those of you with smaller nail beds may be disappointed.  I'm kinda psyched to grow my nails out in order to fit more of the design on my nails. I LOVE anything peacock.

Lena was part of my April Julep Maven selections, with Kaylen and Avery being just as bright and beautiful!

As usual, the most color-accurate photo comes from my iphone:

Hope your Monday isn't as dark, cold, and rainy as mine!
