Feather Nails

I've been wanting to try feather nails for awhile. I purchased the feathers in October so I could use them for a holiday mani in December! I finally did them and I think they turned out pretty neat looking. I was worried that the feather would be really hard to work with or lay flat, but it was easy and didn't give me any problems at all! 

I started with two coats of Zoya Isla on every nail except for my accent, which had two coats of Zoya Purity. Let me just tell you that Isla is absolutely gorgeous! It's a deep shimmery red with a very dark shift to it in certain lights. This is going to be on my toes very soon! :) After Purity was dry, I polished on a clear coat and set the feather on it. The clear coat kind of just sucks the feather down onto it. I used an orange stick to press down the sides until the polish had dried enough to hold them down. I finished the whole thing off with a coat of top coat. I loved the idea of the feather covering my whole nail, which is what I did on my left hand. However, I did the tip of the feather on my right hand and the husband liked that one better, so I took a photograph of that one as well to show you two different ways to use a feather. 

I loved the look of this and the fact that it was so easy means that I will definitely do another feather mani in the future! Enjoy! :)

P.S. Don't forget to enter the giveaway that I'm taking part in! Also, a little birdie told me that a mini giveaway MIGHT be live here tomorrow! :)
