Oh Mon Dieu 2 - Feathers

Hello lovelies!

Hopefully everyone's week is off to a nice start! I get tomorrow off from work so I'd say mine is off to a decent start (:

Anywho, onto the nails!

I feel like I've tried a lot of different things while doing this challenge, which is why I love them. And is no exception since this is my first attempt at feather nails!

Here's what I used:

You know how I've been a *bit* obsessed with destash sales lately? Well these nails feature another polish that I picked up from a sale. I found Lucky 13 Lacquer's Bikini Bottom recently and knew that I *needed* it. It made such a lovely base for these nails!

Today's nails were inspired by these feather nails that I found on Pinterest, I can't find the original artist /: But I started with 2 coats of Bikini Bottom. Using a striper brush, I painted on the black lines for the base of the feather and then I went back in with Tilda and Hilary to add more color. I finished the design by using a dotting tool to add the little circle part of the feather.

My nails don't really look like the inspiration photo and I think my feathers are upside down, but they're not bad for a first try. I really like the colors used for this!

Thanks for reading guys!

    For some reason I keep thinking these feathers belong to an Archaeopteryx... don't ask me why, they look at me funny! ;)
