Braided/fishtail manicure - Artsy Wednesday

 
This week’s challenge in Artsy Wednesday is braided – I thought it would be so difficult, but it wasn’t really, only a little time consuming and an awful lot of layers of polish.
But it was fun to try, and I did like the look of it, even though it could have been more perfect.
The base color is Nails Inc. Sumner Place (the yellow) and the pink is Essie Lovie Dovie and the blue is Essie Bikini So Teeny – and the top coat is Seche Vite.
CutePolish has a very helpful tutorial HERE
Check out what the other girls in Artsy Wednesday did in this weeks challenge
Michelle - Lab Muffin,  Alanna - Pretty Purple Polish, Tif - Polished Genious, (not this week: Lyndsey - Nails by Ms. Lizard), Catrine - Unnakednails, Melanie - Nail & Polish, Jessica - Beauty Gnome, Kamen - Kaka Beauty Blog, Emily - An Accent Nail,

Denne uges udfordring i Artsy Wednesday er en flettet manicure – jeg troede det ville være svært, men det var faktisk ikke så slemt, dog var det lidt tidskrævende og man ender op med mange lag lak.
Men det var sjovt at prøve, og jeg var tilfreds med resultatet, selvom det naturligvis godt kunne have været mere perfekt. Grundfarven er den gule Nails Inc. Sumner Place, de to andre er fra Essie, den lyserøde Lovie Dovie og den lyseblå Bikini So Teeny – toplakken er Seche Vite.
CutePolish har en rigtigt fin vejledning HER

  1. It's very pretty, but my brain can't seem to quite understand it :D
    You'll have to use pretty opaque polishes for it, right?
