Mani Monday: Autumn-Inspired Nails


Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I decided to switch up my nude manicure to something a little more festive. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do to spice things up, so I took a scroll through Pinterest and found this nailspiration.

This look initially caught my eye because it’s sparkly and fun without being overly gaudy (tiny turkey heads on my thumbs just isn’t my style). Originally, I was going to attempt to do it on my own, but because I’m easily frustrated by tiny paint brushes, I decided to hand this job over to the experts. I’m so glad I did because not only were the feather details a lot trickier to do than I thought, but I also got to meet a super cute and bubbly (not to mention, extremely talented) nail artist. A huge thanks to Deana at The Retreat Day Spa for helping my inspiration come to fruition.


P.S. If you’d like to see a step-by-step tutorial, or if you’d like to share any of your own nail art inspiration, comment below!

    Anonymous, if you follow these steps, and then layer glitter over the feathers, they’ll turn out pretty similar! (:
