One Single Feather

I had something completely different planned for tonight's post, but my brain had other ideas. One of my favorite bands, City and Colour just released a new album this week and their song, Thirst, has been going through my head non-stop. Of course the only natural thing to do was paint it.

I love this lyric and thought it would translate well to nails, and look, it did. I've been wanting to try real feather nails for a while too so two birds with one stone here.
I used one coat of Ulta's Set The Nude for the base. The gradient was sponged onto the thumb using Spoiled, Pumping Gas. I added the dots with a dotting tool and white acrylic paint. The lettering was also done with black acrylic. The feather came from a pack that I picked up at a craft store. I followed The Nailasaurus' tutorial found here.

Here's the video for Thirst. Hope you love it as much as I do.
