Feather Nail Art Step By Step

Okay, so my Dreamcatcher nail art seems to be quite popular. I’ve had a lot of people ask me how I created the feather nail so I thought instead of explaining to everyone that asks individually I’d do a quick post about it so you can give it a go yourself if you want. :)

This is what I used..

Sally Hansen White Tip, Barry M Black, an old eyeliner brush.

Step 1: Paint your nail. I used two coats of Sally Hansen.

Step 2: Make a thick line across the nail using the eyeliner brush. I used Barry M Black.

Step 3: Wipe off the excess polish from the brush. Drag the line of polish outwards to make the wispy effect.

Step 4: Add topcoat to keep the design looking its best.

And there you have it! Simple feather nail art. I hope you were able to understand my steps!

I’d love to see your feather nails! You can send me your photos or ask me any questions by commenting or if you click on ‘Contact Me’ at the top of the page you can find all the other ways of getting in touch. :)

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a nail art and today I have one using some of the new polishes which I have been writing reviews on.

I attempted a new design and I have to say I am just a little proud of how well it turned out. I chose to base this look around a dreamcatcher. I wanted that to be the main focus of the design so I kept the other nails quite simple. This is the design..

What do you think?

I was unsure of trying to create a feather, I have never done it before, but I gave it a go anyway and I actually think I like it more than the dreamcatcher! I left the other nails plain in colour but used my textured polish on my little finger.

For this look I used Sally Hansen Hard On Nails in White Tip and Barry M polishes in Black, Prickly Pear, Greenberry, Satsuma and Kingsland Road.

I’d love to hear any thoughts you have on my nail art. Thank you for reading!

Little Owls ♥

Today I’m sharing a cute owl nail design. :)

Owls 1

I chose to use our teal purple.

I’m actually quite proud of these. I think they look adorable! And they were quite easy to do! I used the side of the polish brush for the wings and a hair grip for everything else. It’s all made up of dots! I love how well the feather detail turned out. All I did was make a dot in the lighter colour then added a dot of the base colour over the top to get the half moon shape. So easy!

What do you think of my owl nails?

Polishes used: Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Watermelon, Plum and Prickly Pear. Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Lemon Sugar and Avon SpeedDry+  in Don’t Be Jaded.
