As I said before, I followed the tutorial exactly. The only surprising thing was that I had to use a TON of top coat to get a smooth look. After the first top coat, I noticed the finish was a bit rough, so I applied another...then another...then another...it kept going. I finally started taking the photos and noticed the finish was still rough. I guess it is from the feathers? So, I settled on quickly slapping on a top coat and snapping as many photos as possible before the finish got grainy again. All said and done; I have no idea how many layers of top coat I have on...LOL
I am super excited that I finally got to try out this tutorial! The Nailasarus made it easy to follow. My only suggestion if you are planning trying this out would be to buy at least 2 packs of the feathers. I only bought 1 and only had enough to do 5 nails. Thank goodness thats all I needed! I suppose you could get them from a craft store too...I will have to look into that.
