Feather Nail Art Design Using Gold Foil Leaf with a Bit of Bling

Hey Guys!

So in this tutorial, I’m going to show how to do a Metallic Feather and we’re going to use Gold Leaf to create it. The Gold Leaf comes in a pack so be careful as its delicate. Then we are using a Lavender Gel Polish, which is really bold. The only way this design will work is when your Gel is really pigmented.

After a few minutes under the lamp we then break off tiny bits of the Gold Leaf, it’ll last a long long time. The Lavender Gel Polish also has a slightly sticky layer so the Gold sticks very very easily using a clean finger just flatten it out. It is fiddly but as I’m putting a piece down I’m planning where to place the next bit.

Now what you need is something pointy so you can use a Cuticle Pusher or on the end of Pinching Tool, you have a little cuticle knife. Then you’re going to drag in little lines to create that feathered look. Your sort of breaking it open, don’t worry about it being perfect, we’re going to get to that point.

Now you’re going to take you Lavender put some backing paper from the Gold Leaf, take your colour around the edge, to worry about going too neat. This will start to start it up. Now once you’ve gone around the edge we’re going to fill the nail. Get really close to the cuticle.

The next step is to seal it in with urban Graffiti Top Coat, this has no tacky layer so no need to clean it, just pop in the lamp. Then we’re going to use some Snow White Gel Polish, this will make the design come to life. Take a detailing brush and go down the centre, be really fine, this is your tricky part. You’re going to go around the edge and it’ll really make it pop!

(flash cure it and if you touch the Snow White it won’t smudge)

Now we’re going to seal it, it makes it crier and it’s easier to work on top of it, after curing we can add a little bling, I’m using Acrylic as the stone is a bit big and I prefer Acrylic. Let that dry and then get your Brush On Nail Glue and just add a little around the edge and it’ll seal it all in. Finish with some Cuticle Oil and that’s how you create a Foil Feathered Gold look.

So I hope you enjoy this video. Leave a comment and let me know what else you would like to see.

Love Kirsty xxx

Casandra Lynn says:

I DEFINITELY need to order my gold leaf from you guys that is a beautiful big sheet that gives you so many design ideas but the gold foil I ordered from aliexpress came in this tiny little container so they crumbled it to the point of it just being a ball and not being able to get a nice big gold piece only little chunky looking things so the way you guys have this is brilliant i could do a full gold foil nail with that it’s awesome I’m definitely ordering…. You guys ship to usa right?

So talented. I even like the leaf without the paint but of course you are a perfectionist. You’re good woman!!

Casandra Lynn says:

I know you don’t answer questions much but could you please answer one question, why did we have to trace around the feather with the same purple couldn’t we just do 2 coats before the foil and your edges will be fine I just didn’t understand why that was necessary it was too difficult looking and didn’t seem important, the white I can obv. Understand but the purple color can you explain why that’s important or necessary and I swear I’m not being rude I’m being genuine I really want to do this design and I wanted to know if that had to be done or if you can just do the white cuz you already have the purple background?

Maureen Tuohy says:
