Born Pretty Feather Review
I hope you have better plans than me this weekend - with all of the moving and settling in the last little bits of my grad thesis have been put on the back burner so I'm working on finishing it all off for good!
I've seen a lot of cool real feather manis floating around the blogosphere, and they always intrigued me but I never really gave them a shot until I was sent some feathers from Born Pretty. I had attempted using the feathers over a month ago and nothing worked, which actually resulted in my Peacock feather mani that I ended up loving so much - I guess I was determined to have a feather on my nail that day :P
That being said, I was determined to make this work. So I took a piece of these Fancy Feathers in colour #5 and finally managed to get it to stay on my nail!
I waited for my base of Orly Dayglow to dry, added a layer of topcoat and waited for it to get a bit tacky then gently pushed a cut up piece of feather onto it. When it was placed to my liking I covered it up with top coat then cut off the little bits that were too big for my nail.
For the rest of the mani I used China Glaze Frostbite, a lovely shimmery royal blue polish. I then stamped some feathers using the new Bundle Monster set and Konad White polish.
I really like the feather nail art look, but I like it better on others I think.
