Okay so...this was super difficult for me...I do not have very steady hands! But I had to try it. I give ALL the credit to Ericka at <chloesnails.blogspot.com> and Jennifer at <thelooksforless.com>. It's hard to cut the feathers as close to your nail as possible with shaky hands and eyes that won't focus! On my other nails i used 2 coats of OPI You Don't Know Jaques! followed by a coat of SV. I bet this "one" feathered nail would really pop if it were surrounded by 4 bright red nails...but oh well!
