Although Karla Powell got inspired by the wing feathers, my eye got immediately caught by the feather design on partridge’s neck. Have a look how I dealed with this challenge!
Products I used:
- MUA Nail Varnish in Shade 10
- MUA Extreme Felt Eyeliner in Black
- OPI Nail Envy
First of all, I applied two layers of this pearl brownish nail polish (excuse that little dip/rip/lump in my nail, if you read my blog post ages ago on my nails, you know they are in a state #ew).
Then, when the nail polish was perfectly dry (doesn’t take long), I took the black felt tip eyeliner and went a bit crazy over my nail trying to create something resembling the feathers on a neck of a partridge and this is how it turned out! Finally, I put a thin layer of a top coat.
My boyfriend came up with an idea that changing colours could make it look more christmassy – try blue as a base coat as sky, green at the base of your nail as grass and the little tip bits in white as snow flakes!
