Twinsie Tuesday: Fishtail Nails

Happy Tuesday to you! We have 3 new Twinsies joining us- Welcome Traci, Lakeisha, and Kelly!!

Our theme this week is "Fishtail Mani", which is typically a technique that gives a fishtail braid effect. It looks complicated, until you watch a Youtube tutorial on it (there are tons of good ones) and then, if you are like me, you find yourself saying, "I can do that!". Then I tried. Let's just say, my brain does not process the whole "braid" thing well (I am awful at hair braiding too!). After a few attempts, I settled on an accent fishtail nail. The key is choosing 3 colors that are pretty opaque on their own. I used Zoya Julie (lavender), China Glaze Hang Ten Toes (hot pink), and Sally Hansen Celeb City (silver) for this:
