Ever since I seen the whole feather idea over at Chloe's Nails last year I'd been wanting to try it myself. However I never got round to buying feathers or anything like that, but when I was clearing away some of my old art stuff last month I found some feathers, not the best size but I figured they'd do.
I didn't have any glue to hand.. So I decided to just use top coat, all was going well-ish until I lost some bit's of feathers, and I don't think I waited long enough between coats though as I have quite a lot of ugly bubbling going on ;(
From arms length they didn't look too bad.... But up close = blergh! Also; I didn't use this China Glaze top coat, If I had I probably would have something less, plastic looking, but I used Models Own - 3 In 1, which is just really thin, really good for top coating stamps, and what have you, but does not give a glassy look. Not that you can really tell from this photo.
