Feather/ Dreamcatcher Nails

I very rarely paint my nails the same design twice, because I get bored really easily and I’m always looking for new nail art and creating different styles. This however, I painted on my nails twice last year, and now I’ve gone and done it again!

Boho is really in style at the moment, and I feel like dream catchers and feathers just represent this trend so perfectly. And they are actually really simple to do!

Missed my post on how to apply fake nails? See it here

What you’ll Need:

  • White Nail Polish

  • Turquoise Nail Polish

  • Black Nail Polish ( or a nail art pen)

  • Red or Orange Nail Polish

  • Glitter Nail Polish

  • Clear Top Coat




1. Apply 2 thin coats of Blue and White (on the thumb) polish to your nails.

2. Draw a diagonal Line up the centre of your thumb with black polish.

3. Using sweeping motions, begin to draw hair-like lines on each side of the line: creating a feather shape.

4. On your ring finger, about a third of the way down draw a semi circle. Within the semi circle, draw a small circle.

5. Inside the small circle, draw 3 lines, creating 6 ‘spokes’. Underneath Between the circle and semi-circle, draw 4 lines evenly spaced. Draw 3 lines under the semi circle to be the strings of your dream catcher.

6. Using your white polish, draw small dots on each intercept to look like beads. Draw similar dots on the 3 strings- in either red or orange.

7. Draw a line of glitter through the middle of the feather.

8. Cover with a top coat and you’re done!
