First let me start of by saying this design was a lot more difficult that I anticipated. I created it using real feathers from a craft store and it took a lot of playing around to find the right top coat adhesive and color combinations. I had first done my left hand with a dark brown that allowed the feathers to blend in with the nail. However, once I was done I thought I wanted the feathers to pop more, so I used a light pink/white on my right hand. After I was done and compared the two and couldn't decide which I liked better. On my left hand the look more natural and hide the imperfections, but on my right hand the feathers really pop. You be the judge.
