Feather Fantasy

Feather Nail Art

I've been meaning to try the Sharpie mani for a while, and the whimsical water color effect matched perfectly with these decals.

 GHLQ10I received these feather nail decals from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review.  There are four different sheets of decals - green, red, purple, and blue.  I went with the purple...which really is a mix of purple, blue, and pink.  And there are several different styles and sizes of feathers.  Most of the feathers are on the larger side, but there are a couple small ones which are nice for your pinkys.  The decals are standard water transfer decals, and are easy to apply.  The solid feathers are opaque, so they would work over dark colors.  The stringy feathers are better over lighter colors.

Polish Used:
  • Wet n Wild - French White Creme
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Feather decals
  • Sharpies - purple, blue, pink, teal
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Nail art brush

The Sharpie color diminishes a little once top coat is applied, so keep that in mind when deciding how dark to go.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a white base color.
  2. Add Sharpie "art" to each nail.  There are a couple different ways to do the Sharpie mani. 1) You can scribble Sharpie all over your nail, and then dab and blend with a nail art brush dipped in rubbing alcohol. Or 2) you can scribble Sharpie on wax paper or a plastic bag, then use a nail art brush soaked in rubbing alcohol to liquefy the color and dab it on the nail.  I went with the second option for a lighter, more watercolor effect.  Just work one color at a time, and you can always go back. Once dry, apply a layer of clear coat.  The top coat will lighten and pull the colors a little, so do not drag the brush across the nail.  Use a lot of top coat so you can "float" the polish over the Sharpie.
