Neon feather tutorial

This is a design that looked better in my head than in reality, but I’m sharing anyway. I started with a sheer base of OPI ‘So many clowns so little time’ and on top of that I painted feathers with some different neon polishes. ModelsOwn ‘Flip flop’ and ‘Bikini’, China Glaze ‘Bottoms up’ and ‘Flip flop fantasy’.

After I painted the feathers the first time I overlaid them with another coat of the sheer polish and topped it of with a different neon color on each feather to make them pop more. Finish up with top coat. Easy and fun design. Do you like them?

    Oh no, I hate designs that look better in your head. I always feel like such a failure and wonder if someone with more talent would have been able to paint it better. I do like these, but to me they don’t remind me of actual feathers, but rather feather corals because they’re all wonderful neonish colours!

    I LOVE these. I’m in need of good brushes for tiny designs, so, would you be willing to let me know where you get yours?

      If from a site (I’m hoping I can just go into a store) could you name one with the best brushes you’ve received?

      Thank you sweetie, I use both cheap ones from ebay, just search for nail art brushes, and more ‘expensive’ ones from stylishnailart. I think she has an Etsy shop now. Good luck!
