Orange Fishtail

Happy Thursday lovelies, I am super excited for this weekend! I have been so busy this week and have felt so uninspired so I have another quick mani to share. I was literally staring at my polish collection and just waiting for an idea to pop in my head. After 10 minutes I finally narrowed it down to using orange and here is what mani I decided to wear (after 4 fail mani's).


Lime Crime: Peaches n Cream
NYC: Orange Traffic Jame
Color Club: Sparkle and Soar


I don't wear orange much so this mani is a little weird to me, I do love an easy fishtail mani tho! I am hoping I get some more inspiration soon, and maybe some free time will help that! What do you do when you feel uninspired?

Blue Braided Mani

Morning all and happy Wednesday! Who is happy that we are already half way thru the work week!?! I think my mind is still in vacation mode since I have been feeling uninspired lately. I decided that I haven't done a braid mani in a long time so I would bring it out of the vault and whip one up.


Color Club: Blue Heaven and Take me To Your Chateau
L'oreal: Jet set to Paris


I totally forgot how easy these braid mani's are and you end up with a gorgeous look! Also this L'oreal blue is plain out gorgeous, I almost never wear blue but I LOVE this one. Hope you all enjoy your hump day!!

Green Fishtail

It's a beautiful Friday morning with the sun shinning here in Michigan, I hope your's is as nice! This springy weather made me realize that St Patricks Day is sneaking up on me so I decided I should do a theme mani :)


Color Club: Wild Cactus, Twiggie and Metamorphis

A simple green fishtail is perfect for a green mani. I know green is really not my type of color to wear normally so I am glad to have this 'holiday'. Perfect way to show off some of the green polishes I do own. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Fishtail Mani

Hi all! Lately I have been trying to go thru all my untried colors and today I have a few Zoya's. I also wanted to keep with my theme of trying new nail art so I decided to do a 'fishtail' mani. Now this can be confused with chevron, but that is more like straight V's this fishtail has some curve to it.


I used three Zoya's: Kennedy, Tru, and Monica, with top coat of Out the Door.

My ring finger is probably the worse, I don't know why but I couldn't perfect that one (tried twice). I do like this design it was quite simple to. I have one more new design to try and I am super excited for it, make sure to stay tuned in! :)

Blue Fishtail/Braid Nails

I have a fun new nail art design to share today. The tutorial for how to do this design can be found at Lucy's Stash. The fistail/braid design has been shown around some blogs and Pinterest so I decided to try it out. It is a pretty easy design as well.
Base coat is Color Club: Take me to Your Chateau. The colors for the braid is Color Club: Otherworldy, Take me to Your Chateau, Sally Hansen: Silver Sweep, and Glitter Gal: Silver 3D Holo. Once completed I used Out the Door for Top Coat.
This design was so easy I was able to do it on both hands, and I may even like the left hand better :) I was also able to use two of my new polishes again, Take me to Your Chateau is the perfect light blue creme! You could easily get away with one thicker coat and it dries so fast! I decided to put Glitter Gal over Silver Sweep to add the holo effect that Otherworldy has, but it Otherworldy doesn't show much of the holo glitters, I am excited to see how it will look on its own.
Have you tried this nail art yet? What do you think of it?
