Hello lovelies!
Look at me already not following my new blogging schedule and posting on a Saturday. It’s with good reason though because today is International Nail Art Day! I just found out about this but I had to do something, I mean, really, my blog is kind of about nail art, I think. ;D
Onto the nails!

I decided to celebrate the day by challenging myself to do something detailed!

Here’s what I used:
Today’s nails were inspired by this pattern that I found on Pinterest. I just did feather nails for the first time recently but I think I like the effect of these feathers better.

These nails started with 2 coats of Kristen and some topcoat. Then using the acrylic paint, I painted on just the shape of the feathers and topcoated again. When that had dried, I took my detail brush and added in the different colors. Once the colors were dry, I took a cut down striper brush and added in the feather details. Everything was sealed with another layer of HK Girl.

I think there is a lot going on in this design but I like the look of all the feathers! I just wish that I could have gotten the initial feather outlines a bit thinner (I may or may not have been watching an episode of Criminal Minds where Reid almost dies and you know anxiety because he’s my favorite character and even though I already knows what happens, it’s scary) but that’ll just come with more practice. I know the lines that I painted in the design right after this one are much better!
How are you celebrating International Nail Art Day? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading guys!
