Illamasqua Viridian Peacock Nails!

Good morning, readers! I finally got to try out the gorgeous Illamasqua Viridian that I scored on Copious a few weeks back and I love it! I decided to do a peacock feather design stamp over them and added in some details with a dotting tool. I really like how they turned out, and have decided that "peacock" is my favorite animal print to wear on my nails lately!

I used:
Duri Rejuvacote
2 coats of Illamasqua Viridian
China Glaze Passion and Bundle Monster plate BM-212
Nubar Violet Sparkle and Orly Sweet Peacock with a dotting tool for the accents
1 coat of NYC Grand Central Station top coat

What do you think? I was super impressed that the Nubar Violet Sparkle was dense enough to make a full dot like a regular creme or shimmer polish would! I love the colors together. This was a total score to find Viridian on Copious, and I am so excited about it being my first Illamasqua!
