Happy Monday! I hope you all had nice weekends.
Today I'm showcasing a mani that I did on Saturday afternoon. I was going out to sushi with a friend of mine that just recently moved back to Arizona, and I wanted to do something cool because I knew she was going to check out what was on my nails.
So, I did another fishtail design. If you'll recall, the last time I did this wasn't that long ago!
I love the fishtail/chevron design because it doesn't take long NOR is it very difficult, but it still looks really awesome.
For this lineup, I started with Orly Fresh as the base. Then I added on layers of China Glaze For Audrey, Zoya Charla, OPI Who the Shrek Are You?, and OPI Fly. The only one I was sort of unhappy with was OPI WTSAY, but only because it wasn't as opaque as the others. I did love the bit of yellowness that it added to the manicure though -- I think it is importance for the color balance.
For those of you that missed the first post or need a quick refresher on this technique, the layers are painted on freehand with the brushes that come with the polishes. It is really a lot easier than you might think to achieve this look! I usually end up with a bit of polish on my finger areas surrounding the nail, but those are easy enough to clean up.
Have you tried this design yet? I think it might be one of my go-to designs from now on!
