Today’s Artsy Wednesday theme is fishtail braid nails. I’ve wanted to try this out for a while, but it seemed so messy – I’m glad I tried it though!

Base colour is Nicole by OPI City Pretty Rose, braid is ulta3 Metal and Black Satin.

For a good braid, you want very opaque colours (preferably one-coaters) but unfortunately the black showed up under City Pretty Rose so I had to do some mangling with an art brush.

It’s a pretty fun look, but annoyingly the braid makes the polish quite thick at the free edge.

I hadn’t tried out City Pretty Rose even though I’d had it in the untrieds box for about a year – it’s bright but not quite hot pink, and quite flattering on my skin!

Are you going to try this look?

  1. Fish tail braids involve too much time and patience that I do not have, but its one of my favorite looks right now. So I’ll appreciate and admire it on everyone else 🙂
