Isadora ~ Peacock with OPI and Finger Paint glitters


Isadora ~ Peacock
Deep vibrant blue

Peacock is the last polish I bought from Isadora’s “Jewels of the Orient” collection from autumn 2012. I have several blue polishes in this shade, but knowing the quality of Isadora, I decided to buy it anyway. And I wasn’t disappointed.

The formula is just as good as I’ve come to expect with Isadora. It covered perfectly in one easy coat. Consequently I decided to not apply another, because I couldn’t believe that it would make it any prettier. Don’t take my word for it though – take a look at this pic. It’s one coat, and no top coat yet:


How about that?

Then I applied a coat of OPI “Pirouette my Whistle”, which is a clear base with small silver glitters, and larger white hexagons. It’s from the New York City Ballet collection from spring 2012. It was the only one I picked up from that collection: I am definitely not into nudes, but I love glitters!

This is one coat of glitter over the Peacock:


It reminds me of a clear blue winter sky with snow! I love this:




Then I decided to add more glitter. Yes, there’s always room for more glitter, lol!!

I sponged Finger Paint’s “Laugh my Art off” on the tips. It’s a blue base packed with small blue glitters.

After that I finished with a layer of NYC top coat:


And the final mani from another angle:


Here’s the bottle shot:


So, what do you think? Isn’t this just a perfect winter mani or what?


Opacity: 10/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Durability: 10/10
Value for money: 9/10
Overall: 9.5/10
Buy again: Yes
