Start with a nude base color. I'm using Nina Ultra Pro in French Pink. It's anything but pink.
Get a Striper. This is THE BEST polish/Striper combo. You can get all these supplies at Sally's Beauty Supply.
Start with a slightly curved line.
Now start with your base.
Gently use the base lines to start lightly moving upward in a light brushing motion. This may take a few attempts.
End with small lines toward the top. Maybe try drawing this in paper first with a pencil. Using the pencil lightly against your paper. It's great practice!
If you want add feathers to all your nails
I filled in the empty spaces with light brush strikes to resemble pieces of feathers.
This is the finished look.
Add topcoat and you're done!
