Penelope Luz Peacock is a mix of satin glitters in purple and blue

I cannot call this glitter matte, like I did with Nail Nation I <3 Nail Polish (Purple), because this one has a completely different finish.  The glitter is also smaller, but just as thirsty, I had to add 3 coats of topcoat/basecoat.  Peacock was created by a Brazilian Blogger.  I've posted a couple of swatches from this brand before since I really like the formula.  She layered this here over blue and black on accent nail.  I actually had a hard time finding a good base color for this.  White was too stark and it kind of disappeared on most of the others I tried.  I like it so much on the bottle and I wanted it to translate onto the nails.  After seeing the result, I think it was worth the extra effort.  This was a gift from my Brazilian friend, but you can find Penelope Luz and other Brazilian goodies at Color4Nails, a really good seller that ships within the US.
