Beauty: My First Fishtail Manicure

fishtail3


I am so proud of this manicure.  It took me a while but I finally got the hang of it.  The trick is not too many layers and use opaque nail polishes so you only have to paint the stripe once.  I made the mistake of polishing the stripe twice and the manicure got ruined.  So my on second try, I only went half way on my nail on the first stripe (by the bottom cuticle) and only striped once the rest of the way. Worked like a charm! Products used:  Julep: base coat, China Glaze: Glistening Snow, Nars: Schiap,  Loreal: Royalty Reinvented, Seche Vite Top Coat.
