NOTD 53 – Feathered Lizard

By now I am sure that everyone is sick of seeing the Spiderman swatches especially the most popular one, “Just Spotted a Lizard” BUT I this was the color that I wanted to pair most with the polka-dotted feathers that I got a while back 🙂

Here is a little tutorial on how to achieve this look:

Step 1: Base Coat

Step 2: Paint two -3 coats of color on all nails (with th exception of the nails that you want to feather) *If you paint three, paint two on the nails you want to feather, and if you paint two paint one on the nails you want to feather. (you do this so that the last coat will be wet when you do the feathering.

Step 3: Paint your top coat (SV is my choice of course) on all nails except the ones you want to feather.

Step 4: One at a time, paint a thin coat of your color on your nail and then quickly lay the feather over the nail in whichever way you would like it designed.

Step 5: Gently press the feather down with either a flat brush, or your nail. Then cut the excess off.

Step 6: Once ALL Excess is cut off paint your top coat. (you may need 2 coats of to coat)

*Depending on the feather once you trim it and lay the top coat, it may try to peel. Be patient and continue to gently hold it down. Especially if you use SV top coat it will stay down shortly.

Step 7: Apply your 2nd top coat and voila!
