Tutorial Tuesday!!!

It's time for another group post.. this one is called "Tutorial Tuesday."  Here's how it works.. You pick your favorite manicure tutorial and try your best to follow each step to achieve an awesome mani..  Some great gals and I voted on this theme and I'm excited to give it a go..

Ahh, the dreaded "Braided Fishtail"...  I've seen this one done mani times and decided to try it for Tutorial Tuesday..  I found two tutorials to base this mani on..  I followed this simple blog post from rebecca likes nails...and for a more detailed tutorial I found this one from MissJenFABULOUS on youtube:
Here's MY Braided Fishtail Mani:
OMG-- it looks so easy, but it wasn't.. not for me anyway.  It gets confusing and really thick toward the end of the nail.  I'm glad I chose to only try this on two nails.  I like my middle finger better than my ring finger.. (you can see where I screwed it up a bit with the pink about halfway up the nail on the left).  I like this mani, but I definitely need more practice!
**For this mani, I used OPI DS Radiance, Lex Cosmetics Atlantic, and Hello Kitty nail polish in Pink Summer**

  1. I've seen other ways of doing this mani, but they involve tools and more work, but the end result is a little cleaner. I never do nail art else I'd totally rock these all summer. Really pretty.
