Teal Tuesdays - Braided!

It's Tuesday...yep.
This weeks Challenge is the Braided/Herringbone/Fishtail mani.
Is it just me or is it super annoying when one thing has 50 names? Or 3 names?
I say stick with braided and let's not confuse people.
So that's what we're doing today, and let me tell you...I was not alone in hating the idea of doing this mani.
Sometimes I like this style, sometimes I just do not.
I was not into it - but I was totally surprised when not too long into doing it, I freakin' loved it!

I used all China Glaze for this mani. The teal is Exotic Encounters, the black is Liquid Leather and the gold is Passion.

All I can say is don't be daunted by this mani, it's soooo easy to do!

Dots made with a dotting tool and finished off with Color Club 0-60 Top Coat.

  1. Dotting really gives your fishtail a little something extra, I love it!

  2. I've seen numerous tutorials of how this is done, but my brain just can't seem to understand it completely anyway. It's very pretty though :)

  3. Friggin' gorgeous! The color combo is stunning. I also have a love/hate relationship with fishtails. Sometimes they turn out stunning and sometimes they are my biggest fails + they are time intensive :/ Still this was totally worth the effort ne?
