On top of everything else I did today, I wanted to have an awesome mani to showcase my new photos thanks to my light box. I've been wanting to do a chevron mani forever! However, my search for pinking sheers turned up dry today. I meant to go back out, but it started snowing and the roads were terrible. So I did a fishtail instead. Only I wanted this fishtail to pop! To be awesomely awesome. I racked my brain for ideas, and decided if three colors on a fishtail was neat, FOUR would be better!! Right?! So wrong.
When you do three colors on a fishtail, the colors alternate down (up?) the nail. When you do four, two colors stay on one side, while the other two stay on the opposite side. Not what I was picturing. However, for the sake of the blog, I did take pictures of each step as I was working.
I started with two coats of Orly Blue Collar on all my nails and topped with Seche Vite. I fishtailed the ring finger of my left hand. I used Orly Fancy Fuchsia, Blue Collar, Liquid Vinyl, and Sally Hansen Xtreme White On.
It's a little difficult to explain exactly how I do this in words, so I am just going to post the pictures. I didn't take pictures all the way through. Just the first few steps, and then repeat until the end of the nail.
What do you think of the new pics? I loooove my light box!
On another note, I couldn't take it anymore today and ordered the Hope and Freedom Fest 6 pack today. And, I think I sense a giveaway about to happen! Once I receive the set (they say by the weekend) , I will give you all more details!!
