About a year ago I became obsessed with feather effect nail varnish, and I was lucky enough to receive this great feather effect nail kit for Christmas - Bling it on feathers, Nails inc London. For some reason I've only just used it today, so I thought I'd share my thoughts about it with you all.
It comes in a pack with 2 different types of feather effects, a grey/brown nail varnish, a clear topcoat and a little brush. All you do is paint your nails one at a time with the nail varnish, and then dip it into the "feathers" whilst the nail varnish is still wet, pat the nail and feathers down and then brush away any excess, you then finish off by applying the top coat.
I found it really easy to do, which surprised me because I thought it looked a bit tricky. It does get quite messy so I would definitely recommend doing it over a towel or something, because I'm currently sitting here typing this whilst covered in glitter and "feathers".
As for the finished look, it doesn't look exactly like on the pack but maybe that's just because it's my first time doing it and I need a little more practice. The only thing I could complain about is the fact that even after applying the top coat, my nails aren't smooth in the slightest and they feel quite gritty and have been catching on my clothes, so hopefully another couple of top coats will get rid of that.
I think it definitely looks great although I would recommend going for this nail look when you're going on a night out or something because it is quite extravagant. The "feathers" will last me a while I think because there are two little bottles of them and even after one application the bottle I used still looks full, just be sure to put the remaining "feathers" back into the bottle.
After having used other nail varnishes that give you an instant feather effect, I think this is definitely the trickier option, so this may not be the right nail kit for the people who are lazy with their nails.
Have you ever tried this kit? What did you think of it?
