31 Day Challenge 2015: Fishtail Braid

Monday 26 January 2015

Hi loves!
Ugh, not only is it Monday, it's also the dreaded fishtail braid mani LOL! I love the look but for some reason after the first couple of strokes I start going lopsided and to make it worse my lines are usually a little wobbly because I'm so stressed while painting it hahaha... This is actually only my 3rd attempt and 2nd posted fishtail braid... It's still lopsided, a little, but my lines were super neat and the colours so pretty that I couldn't throw it out!


So to begin, two coats of the gorgeous bright pink gelly. Then used a white and gold polish to freehand on the braid pattern with the polish bottle brush. Rather than a complex explanation, check out this Lucy's Stash tutorial. Finished with topcoat.

This is something I need to practice! I think next time I might draw out the guide on to my nail in a white nail art pen first, maybe that'll keep me in line haha.
