Papier Mâché Nails - DIY Nails Inc Feathers?

Not much of a post today I'm afraid. I'm poorly and so is the baby - though you wouldn't think it as she is lying next to me singing Hokey Cokey!

I'm making this post from my sick bed, off my iPod. How's that for dedication for you?! But I've been doing so well with my daily posts I didn't want to let myself down.

A few weeks ago I was messing around with different things you could put in your nails, with the current rage for texture in mind. So I decided to shred a magazine page really finely and then paint it onto my nails using base coat underneath then lots of top coat. The result made me laugh. I decided to call them papier mâché nails but thought it looked a bit stupid.

But then when I saw the first swatches of nails inc feathers at Vampy Varnish here http://www.vampyvarnish.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Nails-Inc-Brighton-22.jpg it rather reminded me of my papier mâché nails. What do you think?
