Feather Nails - How to

I was watching E! last night and I saw that feather nails are the new thing right now. Who would have thought to put feathers on their nails? We'll I'm glad they did because I think it's such a cool idea. You can do so many different styles and colors plus they are super easy to do.

This is all you need:
feathers of your choice (I chose the colorful ones)
clear polish
nail scissors
 Put down clear polish first, then apply feather while it's still wet (I should have placed it higher on the nail, but this was my first go at it)

 Trim off access and put another coat of clear polish on top

This was my finished result. Instead of clear, you can use colored polish as your base. I think bright blue nails with yellow feathers would look especially amazing. 

You could even try tips like this
