Duochrome Peacock Feathers with Glitter Gal Contorted Mauve

Felt like trying something a bit different so I reached for Glitter Gal Contorted Mauve and my stamping supplies.

I started with a base of Kleancolor Pastel Purple and then painted 2 thin coats of Glitter Gal Contorted Mauve over all the nails.

Contorted Mauve is a duochrome that shifts between a mauvish-purple color and a very green leaning teal color. It's really pretty seeing the shift on the nails! Of course it made me think of peacocks so I decided to stamp some peacock feathers over it from Emily de Molly stamping plate EdM04

I finished it off with Glitter Gal Andamooka Blue flakie polish over the accent nail and top some blue sharpies to fill in the circles on he peacock feathers. That gave it a nice oil slick look then topped off with Seche Vite top coat.

What do you think?


  1. They look WONDERFUL - I love them... I have Duochrome polish & could never think what to do with them. A Peacock Mani is perfect. Thanks

  2. Thank you! Yes, this color really lends itself well to that look :)
