Red hot and feathered up!

A while ago, my cousin had red nails, a stunning highly pigmented colour from the old faithful Essence. I then decided that it's too boring, so lets add a feather. 

Below is what the finished product looked like. We were quite impressed!

You can use any base colour, gold would look quite stunning!

We used the Essence white tip painter, which has a really thin brush. 
Here's how:

Make one long diagonal  line from the cuticle to the tip of the nail
Make short lines diagonally from the long line, toward the tip
Lastly,  make very thin light strokes on the short lines to make the feathers

 It wasn't as hard as it seems, but you do need a steady hand, And I recommend having a partner to help out.

P.S. Don't forget your base coat!



Thanks for reading!
