Real feather nails were quite the trend around the time I done this, so I decided to get some off ebay. I wasn't sure whether to get like 500 for cheap, or 50 for a tad more money, as I wasn't sure it'd be a trend I'd like to do more than once, and what the hell was I going to do with 500 feathers?! XD
The steps are easy...base coat, dry. Top coat, place feather on, trim if necessary, wait to dry. Slather on more top caot. The last step is rather important, as it helps hold down any stray feathery bits and make it smoother, you can see the texture of the feather on my thumb.
