5 Piece Fancy Feather nail art-Born Pretty Review

Happy Friday to all!

Today I have a fun review for you. I've seen these around the web and have been dying to try them.

What better way to try then in a review.  I was sent these from Born Pretty .  Although I was very intimidated at first they really aren't that hard to do.  I chose the blue feathers from the 5 piece fancy feather.

I was not sure what colour the feathers would look best on so I decided to go skittle with it.  I applied the colour base as per usual.  Once that dried I used an old top coat that was pretty tacky so the feathers would stick.  Very carefully I placed the feather on my nail.  Do to the texture I had to top it off with three coats of Seche to get it perfectly smooth. Once that dried I trimmed the ends of the feather as close to the end of my nails as possible. The last little bit I filed off.  Voila!

I really would like to try this with natural looking feathers some time
