Feathered nail art using Barielle and a giveaway

Wednesday, August 13, 2014


Today's post features a summer infused skittle mani with feathers. Who knew it could be so much fun? It's vibrant, dimensional and ready to take flight!

The Barielle Summer Brights collection is perfect for this nail art. Vibrant colors are always a hit for the summer. And as summer is rapidly coming to an end, I had to create something fun and bright.  

To prep my nails for this nail art I used Barielle Extra Gentle Cuticle Minimizer. It works wonders and leaves behind a clean, smooth nail border.

Then I applied a base coat of Barielle Hydrating Ridge Filler. This is my favorite ridge filler. It applies smoothly and doesn't leave behind a white tinge like so many of the others do. And it fills ridges in one easy swipe.

I applied Lemondrops (bright yellow), Sweet Addiction (grass green), Cosmic Kiss (hot pink), Designer's Shoe (sky blue), and Pink Flip Flops (soft pink) to my nails. I let them dry and applied a top coat (don't use a quick dry for this step.) Moving rather quickly, I applied the tip of a feather to each nail and pressed down until it adhered to the nail. Then I snipped of the feather with scissors at the tip of the nail.

I applied a top coat of Barielle Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender to each nail. I let it dry for about 5 minutes to ensure it was completely hardened and added another coat. You want to make sure the feather is completely coated. After it was completely dry, I used a file and filed off the edges of the feather that were hanging over the edge of the nail. Then I added a bit of top coat to the tip of the nail to seal it completely. Now here's the exciting part! Barielle has provided everything used in this mani for a giveaway. And I am even going to add the feathers! So one lucky reader will win everything needed to recreate this mani!



This giveaway is open to international readers (please make sure you know your countries postal regulations as I am not responsible for it being damaged or stopped in transit.) and entrants must be 18 years of age or older (or have parental permission).

    1. Just about any crafts store would have down feathers like setinlaquer's it'd be less expensive than buying from a salon supply store.

  39. I Loved So Many of your Nail Art & Nail Designs, so it's Hard to Pick just One! I Loved the Santa's Hat, Christmas Penguin, & the Peacock Feather Nail Art Designs a Lot but My Absolute Favorite Would have to be the Beautiful Multi Colored Butterfly Decals Nail Design the Best! There are So Many I would Love to Try Out & You Make it Look So Easy & Effortless but there is No Way I Could Successfully Recreate this! I Would be Way to Shaky & Clumsy but I Would Definitely Like to Give it a try! I have Always Loved Butterflies & The Stars & the Moon, Let me Know when you do that kind of Nail Art! Thanks for this Giveaway Opportunity & I Hope you have a Blessed Day! Jana
