Day 58 - Rooster Feather Nails

For these nails I wanted to use my striping paints and paint random ribbons of color in bright tropical shades. First I drew out the shapes in black all over the nails, I then colored them in using an assortment of my instant artist paints. I decided to do some strping over a few of the ribbons to add a little more detail but after painting a couple nails I realized they looked a lot like rooster feathers so I went with this theme and finished the nails.

I really like the look of rooster feathers but I definitely think they should stay on the rooster!! I wore some faux ones in my hair for quite awhile in hopes I would encourage people to go with cruelty free, as an animal rights activist I am strongly againt the real thing and what those poor roosters go through!! And if you can't find synthetic feathers just wear them on your nails ;)
