1- Before doing any painting, gather all of your feathers (you can buy a bag at Target, Micheal's, Walmart etc.) You'll need to make sure that each nail has its own feather and they fit well onto the nail.
2- Apply a color coat on nails. I chose nude because my feathers were colors in the brown family.
3- Now you will need to do a two in one step. Apply clear polish over the color polish and right away stick the feather on your nail while polish is wet. Tap it down and make sure its fully on. (you can use your fingers or tweezers.) Repeat on each nail.
4- After the feather is fully on and polish is dry, cut the piece of feather that is hanging off of the nail. (Get as close to your nail as possible so that the feather goes with your nail shape.)
5- Lastly, go over the feathers with a thick clear top coat. Allow this to dry fully.
6- Enjoy your new look!
