Purple Peacock Nails

Hola niñas! Hoy les traigo un nailart simplecito con este nuevo OPI que mi madre me compró en DBS :D Se llama Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI? y es de la colección Holland de 2012. Es un morado medio tirando para oscuro con tono cálido y un precioso shimmer dorado/rosado que desgraciadamente es invisible en la uña. Luego estampé sobre el una imagen de la placa Nailz Craze NC02, como la imagen era muy grande para usarla en una sola uña hice una especie de mosaico poniendo una parte en cada uña. El dorado que usé para estampar es Color Show Bold Gold.
Hey girls! Today I bring you a very quick nailart I did with a recent acquisition. This is my first time using a large stamping image across all my nails and it was quite fun... on my right hand. My left turned out... not so well, let's say! But you live and you learn and I loved this one while it lasted.
I started with two coats of OPI Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI which is a medium warm toned purple with a beautiful pink/gold shimmer that -sadly- was almost unnoticeable on the nail. The formula was good and self-leveling but the invisible shimmer bothered me, if I see it in the bottle, I want it on my nails.
Then I stamped over my base using Maybelline Color Show Bold Gold (currently my favorite gold for stamping) and using the Nailz Craze NC02 stamping plate. I stretched the peacock feather through all my nails, which made for an interesting effect.
Above you can see how my nails looked in their normal position. Overall, I really liked this mani, but I wish the shimmer in the OPI color was more pronounced. Do you have a tip for fixing invisible shimmer? Please let me know.

Thanks for reading!
