Neon fishtail... what's a fishtail? Is that a braid? What's a braid? WHO HAS THESE ANSWERS?! lol
I was going around, asking people (well mostly just Kristin and Cristine) what their interpretation of the fishtail mani for this week's WNAC was since I wasn't quite sure if the braid and the fishtail were the same thing or not. I think I only successfully confused myself, which really, isn't good for anyone.
But after some serious thought, I ended up just doing these - which is a good middle ground between the fishtail that I thought was fishtail and the braided nails that I didn't know was not fishtail... Are you following me? Honestly, there's that self-confusion again hahaha
I think the important lesson here is that I love this mani and it was nice and EASY! :D
Here are the polishes I used:
Pink: KB Shimmer - Lei It Again
Holo: China Glaze - Fairy Dust
Purple: Essie - Sittin' Pretty
Dark Pink: Brides No Grooms
|Yes, the Fairy Dust has been used, A LOT! :D|
I used a makeup sponge to sponge on the 3 cremes over a white base multiple times to get the gadient
|I kind of really love this mani - a lot|
Then I topped it with Fairy Dust
I used my trust quick dry top coat to seal in the gradient and create a smooth surface so I could draw the fishtail pattern with black acrylic paint and a striper brush
Sealed everything again with top coat and that was it!
|You can see the holo right? FAIRY DUST EVERYTHING!! :D|
I'm starting to really get back into my nail art and I LOVE IT!
Sometimes life gets in the way and you get sad to not have time to do nail art but I'm back! Yay!
