Artsy Wednesday: Fishtail Braid Manicure!

This weeks Artsy Wednesday challenge was to create a manicure using the "Fishtail" technique. That is, where you alternate stripes of different colors at an angle to create a braided effect. I used a range of blue polishes to create mine. 
I used L'Oreal Club Prive, Wet n' Wild Stay Out of my Bismuth and Black Creme, and Orly Sapphire Silk. I topped it all with HK Girl topcoat to smooth it all out. 
What do you think? I think its a fun look, but I should have used more contrasting colors. 
Is this a manicure you would try?
Be sure to check out the fishtail manicures from the other ladies participating in Artsy Wednesday!
Thank you so much for reading! 
All the best, 


  1. I liked the color combo, that you used! Well painted :)

  2. I like that they colours aren't too contrasting, it gives it a really nice subtle effect :)

  3. I agree with Julie and Maria - The colors you picked are subtle and not too overwhelming. I like it!

  4. the colour combination really works well! Great job :)

  5. Very cool! Love the blues :) Great job!

  6. I like the blue shades combination. :)

  7. I like the different blues! I think it might look better if that sneaky sheer one covered the black better, I had the same problem with mine!
