Today is Tutorial Tuesday! It didn't take me long to figure out which tutorial I wanted to try. Lately I've been admiring people's fishtail braid manis and wanted to try it! I followed Lucy's Stash's fishtail braid tutorial. Although it didn't turn out as nicely as hers, I think it was decent for my first try. =( I am a little embarrassed of my first attempt but oh well!
I do know I layered my polishes WAY too thick. You can see what I mean in the photo hahaha... Next time, I will try to do thinner coats and straighter lines. I didn't get to wear this mani for long because it never dried. =(
I used Barry M Cyan Blue, Barry M Blueberry I/C, and Finger Paints Pop Art Purple. I followed Lucy's Stash's fishtail braid tutorial. My photo isn't color accurate. I'm not sure if that is from layering all the colors or from my camera. I suspect my camera. It doesn't play nice with purples and blues.
Have you tried a fishtail braid mani? What do you think of my first attempt?
