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
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?
