I finally tackled the fishbraid mani thanks to a tutorial from another DD girl, Jacki of Adventures in Acetone. She chose to use the UberMat for her 40 Great Nail Art Ideas fishbraid...absolutely genius! So I tried it and found it's a much easier alternative than trying to paint relatively straight lines right onto your nails. Thank you Jacki!
For this mani I used Color Club Crystal Baller, Essie Fiji and Rica Blackout to make the fishbraid decals on the UberMat. After they were applied, I added HK Girl top coat and was good to go.
As with many of this week's designs, they took a couple of tries to make presentable. I guess that's what happens when you try new techniques. Here's the previous attempt of a fishtail mani...mental note: grey and silver photograph way too similar!
That's all for Day 1. Please please please check out the rest of the Digit-al Dozens posts to see their new and improved designs and to give our new members a big welcome!
'Til next time...
