31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Inspired By A Tutorial!

 Inspired By The Fishtail tutorial from Lucy's Stash!
Hi guys!
This challenge manicure is inspired by a great tutorial I saw long ago on Lucy's Stash, for a fishtail braid manicure. I kind of forgot about this great technique, but when this challenge came along it refreshed my memory and I found it again.

Because this was my first time trying this I thought I would just do an accent nail instead of a full manicure. I am glad I did, because this took a pretty long time. I wanted to make sure the layers were dry enough not to get smudged. The polishes I used were China Glaze Exotic Encounters, China Glaze Passion and Essence Spicy.

I really looove how this turned out, especially for a first try! I hope you guys like it too and see you next week!

Stay tuned for challenge day 31: Recreate a manicure you love!

31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Polkadot Nails!


  1. I love it! That green is so gorgeous and you did a great job with the pattern, especially if it's really your first try! (I gave up long ago, lol, I just can't get it right)

  2. Thank you :) the green is one of my favourites!
    It was my first try, yes :) I had to redo one of the strips though, because I had made it too small. But it was easily redone when dry
