Feather Nails

My sister is back in Florida visiting from Washington and we’re having so much fun together! She did the way popular lace manicure for me last month and I dared her to come up with another manicure as fun as the last. We ended up in Michael’s with a cart full of feathers and boas and this is what we came up with.

Feather Nails Manicure Ingredients:

  • Bag of {faux} Feathers
  • A Base Coat
  • A Base Color
  • Thick Clear Top Coat
  • Tweezers

To recreate my feather nails, first prep your nails with a base coat – I used Essie’s Protein Base Coat, followed by a base color. I used Color Club’s Pretty in Platinum. The pearly white silver contrasted beautifully against the exotic pattern and color in the feathers.

Next, top one nail with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat and press a feather into the nail using tweezers quickly before it dries. With a small pair of scissors, cut the feather around the edges that extend past the nail. Apply one more coat of Seche Vite to secure the feather onto the nail. Repeat for the remaining nails.

Thanks so much to my sister for another fun manicure! So what do you think of this feather manicure? Would you wear feather nails?
