Step 1: Materials
Ciaté Feathered Manicure kit contents
nail color (optional, kit does include one)
Step 2: Prepping Your Nails
Make sure your nails are totally clean by removing polish.
Paint a base coat on before starting.
Step 3: Base Color
Either using the given nail color or one of your own, paint one coat of color. Clean the edges and let dry.
Step 4: Placing Feather
One nail at a time, have a feather ready and paint a second coat of color. Place the feather of the nail, "stem" away from the nail, with a small space between the cuticle and the feather. Press the feather gently onto the nail.
Step 5: Trim Feather
Trim the excess feather off, leaving some at the free edge of the nail.
Step 6: Top Coat
Using the given topcoat, paint a coat over the feather. Allow to dry completely.
Step 7: Excess Feather
Using the given blocks, file away the excess feather in a downwards vertical motion, starting in front of the nail and pushing towards the back of the nail.
Step 8: Repeat
Repeat steps 2-7 on all nails. If desired, paint a second top coat.
Step 9: Voila!
Bask in the glory of your hard work. Thanks and enjoy!
