I'm super excited, I got a new toy in the mail the other day. It's not polish, but better: a lightbox! No longer am I taking pictures by the light of my $10 Ikea floor lamp but by the clean white light of this beauty. It's taking a bit of getting used to in terms of settings as I use all manual settings on my camera but I'm happy with the results thus far. Take a look at my first go at both Fishtail Braid nails and my new lightbox!
I found this set of pink/purple mini Color Club polishes at Winners a while back and have been trying to find a way to use them for a while now. Why not Fishtail Braid? First up, I started with two thin coats of the lightest pink. Then, going in order from lightest pink to darkest purple, I layered the stripes over the top of one another, correcting any pooling around the edges of my nails as I went. It's interesting, using an even number of colours, as I kinda got this gradient effect. I like it!
The Verdict: Fishtail Braid nails are cool, I want to try them with other colour combos now. It's nice to be girly with the pinks and purples sometimes though.
