Happy July 3rd...gearing up for the middle of the week July 4th celebration with a nice blue polish. Dolce and Gabbana Peacock is a deep dark indigo blue creme. Although Peacock is a very dark color, it does not appear black, by any means. Peacock went on beautifully with just two coats. I had a more difficult time taking it off than applying it, the color ended up staining the nails, cuticles and surrounding areas a bit.
