Scientists and experts are still learning about the stunning peacock, possibly one of the most beautiful creatures to grace planet Earth. With its long tail feathers and out-of-this-world colours, the bird has been the inspiration for many an artist over the centuries, but it seems there are a few secrets hidden beneath those wonderful plumes. For example, did you know that when the peacocks shake their tail feathers, they also make a very low-frequency humming noise that other peacocks can hear, but humans can’t hear? We didn’t know that either, and neither did scientists until just a few years back. It’s wonderful how many new things we still have to learn about the animals we kinda take for granted, don’t you think?
Anyway, fun peacock facts aside, we’ve decided to pay the elegant animal some love. Some nail love, to be exact. We hope you’re sitting comfortably because you are about to see some serious #nailinspo!

Let’s get straight to the point, these animals are absolutely blooming beautiful. A great way of using those metallic shade s that you never seem to reach for, the beautiful peacock design has been hand-painted with a dark, black background. If you wanted your peacocks to stand out a bit more, there’s nothing wrong with substituting that black background for a lighter shade — silver, perhaps? Or maybe even a gold or bronze tone? We loved the way the black has been used in this design though, we must admit.
