Navy, silver and blue fishtail
The theme in today’s FingerFood’s Theme Buffet challenge is fishtail.
Now to some people, fishtail means a braided pattern, and to others it means a curved chevron French tip sort of design.
I’ve gone with the latter (as it’s easier – ha ha), but I have done braided nails before.
I started with a base of the polish I was already wearing: Rimmel Midnight Blue. Then, using curved chevron guides, I added tips in Barry M Silver Foil Effects. The blue – Rimmel Blue Eyed Girl – was freehanded on, as I couldn’t be sure if I’d get the lines evenly spaced if I used more French tip guides, as they would have to cover up what had already been painted. As it turned out, I was a fraction out with the right-hand sweep on my ring finger, but it’s hardly noticeable.
I really love these nails. They’re very “me” … the colours, the geometry, the lines, the symmetry.
