NTNA top 3: Manus x Machina (Sponsored by CND) Part Four

We were asked to create a set inspired by feathers in fashion. We had to include hand and machine made elements and the set was to be made on 10 individual nail tips.

I continued on my color theme from the previous challenges (Folded nails, Fifty shades of lace) and made the nails black and white.

I used dyed feathers and machine made rhinestones on my set for the Machina part of the set and hand made everything else. I painted feathers inspired by water color prints in fashion. I find layers very inspirational in fashion so I layered thin acrylic triangles to resemble feather themed gowns. I made similar 3D feathers using acrylic and brought the set together with the real feathers.
