I absolutely LOVE fishbraid manis, there's just something about the triple whammy of colour that warms my heart, but sometimes they can be a beast to do.
My success rate is about 50/50 with them, which really pees me off, as my first one was perfect, and I wasn't prepared for failure to come AFTER. What I've earned since is that there are a LOT of variables ready to ruin your fishbraid, and I'll go through them soon in a SIMPLES tutorial.
Today we have a stunning colour combo. In fact, the base is so delicious, it's going to get it's own post. It's Scattering Sunlight from Lilypad Lacquer (via a duo Nicole did with Octopus Party Nail Lacquer), and it's just incredible. You can have a little peek now, but for details on exactly HOW incredible, you need to come back in a couple of days.
To make my fishbraid, I wanted to highlight some of the colours in the polish, so picked Barry M Blood Orange for my red, and my beloved OPI Sparrow Me The Drama (below the halfway line now - eeeeek!) for the pink.
I love how these 3 polishes work together, and I was actually quite sad to take this one off.
