A teal feather inspired mani

Inspiration can be a weird thing. I saw a feather blowing along in the wind across the grass and this design popped into my head.

Ulta3 French Pink (Sheer Pink), Rimmel 60 seconds Green with Envy (Green) and Australia Blue Tiger (Blue)
Unfortunately despite my best efforts, I couldn't photo how gorgeous the green is. In real life it is so much more vibrant.

The how-to for this design:

  1. After base coat, use a shear pink over the nail 
  2. Create a french tip with a teal green to cover white tips 
  3. With the same teal green use a striper brush to create random strips 2/3 down the nail
  4. Take a true blue polish and add extra striped in between the teal green stripes 
  5. Finish off with a top coat and you're done.
So where do you draw inspiration from?
