 A peacock has beautiful tails. Does it have only tail or more than one?


 The actual tail has only 20 feathers and nearly all of these feathers end with an elaborate eye-spot.

You need an article in this example, May.  You can write a nice tail or a beautiful tail.  I'd use beautiful, though.  The size and colors of the tail make it better than nice.
