I did my first feather manicure months ago. I only did one accent nail. It turned out pretty good, but I never took a picture of it. I've been wanting to do another one ever since. I picked up some fun colorful, polka dot feathers at Michael's and was eager to get to work.I started with a white Nailside cloud on each tip as a back drop. I put on a coat of Jordana Quick Shine top coat and while that was still wet, stuck the feather to it and pressed it down a bit. Once it was stuck I trimmed it up with some scissors and topped it all off with Seche Vite. I had to put on a couple coats of Seche Vite to smooth out the rough edges.
The purple feather on my thumb was really dark (almost looked black) and didn't fan at all. I was disappointed in my thumb. Oh well.
