Nail Art - Thanksgiving Feathers Manicure

I am blessed to have so much to be thankful for this year, including having some me-time for manicures!

This is a fairly simple manicure that can be replicated by most skill levels. I started with 3 coats of  'Suzy Loves Cowboys' by O.P.I. on my pinky and middle fingers. This polish is a dark brown creme released as part of the Texas Spring 2011 collection. I must sadly inform that its formula is pretty disappointing. It goes on thinly and it keeps pulling off if you try to reapply on top of a fresh, wet coat of polish. But, the color is gorgeous and perfect for Fall!

Next, I used 2 coats of 'Moracc-go' by Sally Hansen on my ring and index fingers. This Summer 2014 limited edition polish is an orange-brick creme from the Insta-Dri line and the formula is fantastic. One easy coat was all I needed for full opacity, but used 2 just for good measure!

For the stamping, I used 'Good as Gold' (gold creme) by Essie and a flower image from Pueen's Encore SE02A plate. I wanted to complete both Thanksgiving and feather manicure challenges on Instagram and thought this stamp translated well to feathers! I used a small nail art brush for the detailing using alternating brown and brick colors. I used small, round gold studs from Born Pretty to accentuate my ring and pinky fingers and finished by applying top coat.
