Animal Print Nails for the #31DC2018Weekly

Hey there!

I am officially caught up with the challenge now!  Today, I have my animal print nails for you.  Mine aren't exactly an animal print but they do have bits of real animals on them.  I used some real feathers from the craft store on my nails in a fun little brown skittlette mani for the prompt.  Let's take a look!

I used two nail polishes in this look.  The brown and bronze sparkly textured polish is "What Wizardry is this?" by OPI.  The light nude creme is "Cala" by Zoya which is the base of the two feather nails and on my pinkie.

With the base color still tacky, I gently pressed the tip of the small feather onto the nail.  I applied glossy top coat over the entire feather and off the end of my nail.  Once it dried, I came back and clipped the hardened feather excess off the tip of my nail.  Adding a gel top coat or another layer to glossy top coat and wrapping it around the tip will keep the feather on more securely for regular wear.

What do you think?  I always enjoy attaching weird things to my nails.  I have done feather nails many times in the past and always like the effect.  Have you tried feather nails before?
