Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.

1. Polish the nail dark blue.

2. Using a detail brush, make a brown tilted egg-shape in the center of the nail.

3. Outline the egg in pale yellow, then pale green. It’s OK if the colors overlap or look slightly irregular.

4. Add a green circle inside of the brown egg, toward the bottom. Add two dark blue circles inside the green circle, making the dark blue circles touch. Underline the bottom curve of the green circle with dark blue paint.

5. Using a gold glitter striper and a light touch, create the feather stem. Use the same striper to create lines that curve from the top of the stem to outline the egg, then join at the top and extend the feather. Add additional curvy gold and brown lines, as shown. Apply top coat.
