shake yer tail feather

I decided to give feathers on my nail a try after being totally smitten by Chloe's blog. (PS you should wish her luck as she goes through a difficult time in her life). Her blog is just utterly fantastic and it really makes me wish I didn't get nervous to the point of peeling all my nails off...including this feather by the next morning. But that's mostly because I'm not one for nail decor. But that's usually because I peel it off. Full circle. Yay nervous habits!
For this little project you will need:
1. Clear nail polish
2. A feather
3. Scissors or nail clippers
• Tallest Man on Earth daintily playing on Spotify

Now do this:
1. Pick a part of the feather and cut it to match the size of your nail.
2. Apply a layer of clear polish
3. Apply feather to wet coat of clear
4. Smooth with a top layer of clear polish
5. Trim any naughty, stray feather parts for being bad

All done!
