TRI Tuesday - Faux Feathers
Have you ever wanted to do a type of nail art, but found yourself lacking in the materials to make it? I wanted to do a feather mani, but didn't have what I wanted. So, in those ancient words of wisdom, I decided to fake it 'till I made it!
I started off with my nude color, Zoya Jacqueline. Pretty almond color, lumpy, patchy formula. Jackie is kind of a b!tch.
I may have found the perfect summer coral color in China Glaze Mimosa's Before Mani's. Thank goodness the color is amazing, because its punctuation is atrocious.
Completing the colorful faux-feather look is Takko Lacquer Nirvana, a turquoise creme with gold flakies. These little takkitos are hard to get! She restocks once a month, and the polishes last about 3 seconds.
Doesn't this pattern remind you of feathers? From like a really weird bird? Maybe if you squint and walk away from your monitor a little.
A little more...
I knew you could see it. You're so creative. Mr. Rogers was so right about you.
Oh, that coral. I'm in love.

Do you fake it in your creative endeavors? Cooking, crafting, performing?
