Feather Nails

Hello fellow nail fanatics! What a beautiful weekend! The husband and I went out to Tropical Smoothie for lunch and picked up some things from Lowes. He is working on making me a really inconspicuous watering system for my flowers. What a great hubby. :-)

Today I decided to give feather nails a shot. I found this picture through pintrest and I loved it. I don't think mine turned out as great, but it was still something new to try. I had picked some feathers up from Michaels a while back and finally pulled them out to use. I did a base color of ZOYA Kennedy and then topped it with Seche Vite. I pressed on the feathers right after applying the top coat to act as adhesive. Then, I topped with another coat of Seche Vite to secure the feathers in place.

Trimming down the feathers was by far the hardest part. Mine kind of fell apart when I trimmed them and it was super hard to get it clean against my cuticles. I think some peacock feathers would be a beautiful option to try out on one's nails.

Have you ever tried feathers on your nails? What's your favorite funky nail trend?

Thanks for popping in!

* as a side note I wish I had chosen a deep brown color for the base.
