Here is just a quick tutorial of how to do a Feather manicure! I have the tools shown below that you will need with the exception of a pair of manicure scissors that made the fine feather trimming much easier!
These were real pheasant feathers sent to me by my dear friend Laurie. You can use any feather obtainable at a craft store. My next one will be with Peacock feathers!
|Here are some variations you can do. Different angles and parts of the feathers.|
|If you look at my ring finger, you can actually see where I tried some of the down part of the feather. My whole nail was a fluff ball until I clear coated it!|
|I chose my feathers and cut them down to nail sizes. They are not exact, the trimming will come when I stick them on.|
|Here is the same nail, after Seche Vite and before filing the edges.|
|Another nail as I lay it on before trimming...|
|This is the first nail I did, my left thumb. I like how it turned out. On this nail you can see my base color through the feather.|
|My other thumb has some unique pattern and coloration, although I didn't get as clear of a picture on this one.|
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I would love to see pictures of all of your feather manis, feel free to leave me comments with your links! :)
