My First Fishtail Attempt

     I recently purchased a bunch of nail art brushes. Last night, I really wanted to use them but couldn't think of a darn thing to do. I ended up not using them and went with a fishtail manicure instead. I've never tried this look before. For my first attempt, I think I did pretty well. (My light box still isn't back up yet. Excuse the less than normal pictures.)

     Polishes (All OPI) used from tip to cuticle:
I Brake For Manicures
You Don't Know Jacques
Uh Oh Roll Down The Window
Honk If You Love OPI

      This look was much easier than I expected. At first, I just did three colors as an accent on each hand. When I realized I could do it on my right hand without any problems, I decided to go all out. The addition of I Brake For Manicures was a last minute idea. I think it pulls it together nicely. The best part of this? I used 4 untrieds!

     This looks a million times better in real life. It's not perfect, but it'll just get easier the more I do it. Now, I just need to figure out what to do with those new brushes. Any ideas?


  1. Lovely fishtail mani. I really like muted colours but sometimes have a hard time wearing them without it looking really dull. This is a great way to do it.
