Peacock Braided Nails
Without question, I love this trend It's is actually, a whole lot easier than it looks. My previous post, Braided Nails, is a step by step tutorial, if you haven't already mastered this technique. If you are already familiar hope you like the peacock color combo :)
Almost has an Egyptian kind of vibe going on. Completely unplanned and totally sweet!

In the tutorial I referenced earlier, I only used three polishes (which gives you a little different look) here I used four. As you can see, by using an even number of colors, you get a half and half split design. In this case, one side green and gold, and the other blue and purple.
At the top of each nail I added a little colored rhinestone for some sparkle. I don't use a whole lot of bling of this sort, but when I do :) I use this little pink rhinestone picker upper thingy that you can find at your local Sally's for a couple dollars. It has a plastic tip and makes placing those tiny stones a breeze.
