It’s easy to spruce up your wardrobe and make-up for the holidays, but what about your nails? Why settle for a boring red or green shade when you can feather yourself? Yes, you read that right. Feathered manicures are all the rage right now and we just had to give it a try.
European nail polish retailer Ciate London is one of the first to invest in this runway trend. They’re 3-step kit make the process seem less intimidating and more fun. Whilst watching some Breaking Bad on Netflix (yes, we’re late to the bandwagon), we gave it a try. See the results when you flip the page.
We’d definitely recommend having a friend do it for you. While there are only three steps (base coat, feather, top coat), the feathers are super fragile and….well….feathery. So, if not placed carefully, they won’t stick all the way or lay flat. However, the end product looks super cool up close and the base coat is strong so chipping is less likely days later.
Next time, I’d love to try this with a darker color for the base coat or different colored feathers.
