Feather Nail Art (Julep Partnership)

More than a month ago, I received an email from Julep's Twitter account asking me if I would be interested in providing them nail art if they provided me with nail polishes. Being a lover of their Julep Maven program and being a huge fan of their nail polishes, of course I agreed! I only started this blog for fun and to share my nail art with the world. Never would I imagine a company would ever contact me! It was a really exciting opportunity especially with one of my favorite nail polish company!



They sent me three looks to complete using their nail polishes within my collection, and the feather nail art was one of them! I completed this nail art a while ago and they said they would feature it, but I don't think I've seen it on their website yet. This nail art seems like it's more suitable for Fall/Autumn, so maybe I'll see it then. But in the mean time, I just want to share this with my readers. Anyways, I did receive their goodies so I just want to thank the Julep team for sending it to me! I received Parker (Golden tangerine creme) and Sienna (Sophisticated, shimmery gold), as well as top coat and a base coat! In addition, they sent me a lovely hand written note. 


Materials
  • Orange Polish
    • Julep "Ashley"
  • Black Polish
    • Julep "Elizabeth" 
  • Copper Polish
    • Julep "Rachel"
  • Nail Art Brush
Instructions
  1. Paint your nail with an orange polish and allow it to dry.
  2. Using a nail art brush, dip a little bit of black nail polish and create a line in the middle of your nail. When you reach the top of your nail start fanning it out. Continue to dip a small amount of polish and fanning it out to create the feather the effect. The best trick is to create a little glob and then just create streaks. 
  3. Create a copper "V" at the bottom and at the top.
  4. In the space between the copper "V's", fill it in with an orange V. This is to add some color and dimension to the feather to make it look more realistic.
  5. Finally, repeat step 2 until you achieve the effect your are satisfied with. 
I'm trying out different ways to showcase pictorial instructions and this is a template I created. What do you ladies think? I also tried using GIFs to make it like a slide show, but the quality of pictures look better in this. 


Suggestion for my next nail art? Please leave it in the comment section below!
