Blue Fishtail Braided Nail Art

Monday, March 24, 2014

This is my last manicure for untried theme this month for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. I've always wanted to try the fishtail braid design but for some reason I've never attempted one. There's how my first try at it turned out.

Blue Fishtail Braided Nail Art
Orly, Sally Hansen, Nicole by OPI, Seche Vite

First, I applied Orly Sweet Peacock on all the nails. Taking Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, I applied it at a slat and repeated this with Nicole by OPI Stand By Your Manny along with the base color. You should be left with a fishtail braided design. Finished with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

For my first try at it, I think I did pretty good job at the fishtail braids. The blues really compliment each other. What do you think of my blue fishtail braided manicure?

  7. I love the way this looks! Love how it's monochromatic :) Did you find that it got really thick though or took a really long time to dry? I haven't tried it yet

    1. Thanks! I didn't find it too thick but creating it took a while since I had to wait for the stripes to mostly dry before applying the next stripe. Other than that, with a top coat on top, it smoothed the whole manicure out :)

  14. I love that you used polishes from the same color groups for this. I definitely need to try out a fishtail mani someday.
