Soft and feathery nail art

Hello hello~ I felt like a soft manicure when I sat down to do my nails and so decided to try out the feather design I saw over at Nature Nails. I love stalking the blog - the lady behind it is so amazing and has such gorgeous nail art. Totally green with envy at her skills! My feathers are no where near as delicate looking at hers but I'm pleased with the result for a first timer. Actually, my right thumb looks even better so what does that say about my left hand skills! :P

I started with two coats of OPI Did you 'ear about Van Gough and then used my white acrylic paint for the feather. I then layered with OPI Pirouette my whistle, taking inspiration from the original manicure :)

Hopefully, my feathers will look more like feathers one day.... ;)

Have you tried this look before? What do you think of it?

Thanks for reading!
