#nailfail – One Stroke Feathers

Isn’t it funny how, if I had done this nail art a year ago, I would have been super pleased, yet today it feels like a nail fail?! 

I’m still happy to put less-than-perfect nail art up, though, I think you all know I’m not perfect already, haha!

One Stroke Feathers Nail Art-003

We had another nice, quiet weekend. I’m going on a big work trip to Switzerland on Monday and Tuesday, so a quiet weekend is what I needed 😉

One Stroke Feathers Nail Art-001

I tried to do one-stroke feathers, but I think  they just look like funky leaves. The base colour is Kiko ‘Quick Dry’ 834. Which, by the way, does not dry quickly. And it is pretty streaky, I used 3 coats as I knew I would cover a lot with the ‘nail art’, but I think it would take 4 coats for a perfect finish… So this one’s going straight to the dustbin! Shame, really, as the colour is lovely – a pale, frosty mint with a fine golden shimmer. But really, I can have enough dang nail polish, there’s no point in keeping one that’s such a pain to use.

Yup, I think I’m suffering from a case of Sunday Night Blues…

    What a pity about the formula – it’s such a pretty colour! And your feather leaves look great 🙂
