Festival season is well underway and although I’m not actually going to one this year (at the moment anyway) I still like to get into the spirit of things with some bright, jazzy nails! I adore white nails for the summer and thought these beautiful neon feather nail decals would look amazing over the top.
I’m always on the hunt for the perfect white nail polish. Last year I was all about Models Own Hyper Gel White Light, (you can see some of my nail art looks with this here, here and here!) However my bottle has gone a bit tacky now so before buying a new one I thought I’d play with a few other options. For this mani I used Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in the colour Cotton. It’s a really lovely bright “tippex” white and applies pretty well. I used two coats to get a fully opaque covering.
I love trawling eBay to find cheap nail art supplies and was thrilled with this feather design. I actually got 5 packs for 99p which is an absolute bargain! I think nail decals are perfect for festival nail art as you use less nail polish, so there’s less chance it will chip off and your nails will withstand festival fun for longer. It’s also obviously a really quick and easy way of having some pretty intricate patterns.
The nail decals were super easy to use. Just cut around the shape, soak it in water for a few seconds, peel off the back coat and then place gently on the nail. I added a slick of top coat to seal the deal and voila – good to go! The feathers did rip slightly as I added the top coat but it all adds to the boho / shabby chic appearance of the design!
I live in Brixton in London. I eat out far too much, am always planning my next trip and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter.
