Feather Mani

Good morning! I am happy for a fresh new week. Maybe that's because I actually slept last night! So I am back to (hopefully) redeem myself after yesterday's snoozefest of a post. I have been wanting to try this idea for forever and finally picked up some feathers at my local craft store. This is a fairly simple mani to acheive. 


The base for this is Color Club Soft as Cashmere. I know that this look is typically done by sticking the feather in wet topcoat, but my husband had the genius idea to use nail foil adhesive and that was 12487391 million times easier!! Once it's topped off with a nice, thick layer of topcoat, the effect is pretty awesome!


The other thing I loved about this is that it has staying power. I am on day 3 of this mani and the feathers haven't lifted or anything. 


I hope to find some more colorful feathers and try this again sometime. <3

Pin It!

  10. I honestly haven't gotten into the "feather" thing that seems to be popular lately. Earrings, clips for your hair...but THIS?? THIS I can get behind! :)

    Very cool. I'll be picking up some feathers.

  16. This is really cool! I tried a lace mani recently and I loved the look, but it was so textured. How was the texture on this?? It looks pretty smooth from your photos!

  17. F*cking awesome! ♥ it!

    I have a couple of bags with feathers too, especially bought for this type of nailart, but these colors are great (mine are a bit too bright I think).
