I don't like how these nails are called 'fish tails'. I guess that's just the name of the basic plait, but it's so yuck-sounding! I prefer braided or plaited - easily recognisable and sound fine.
This is such a beautiful pattern! I've seen them around for awhile but thought they looked quite complicated so decided to wait to try them. But they're actually okay! You don't even need any special brushes or anything, it's great!
I found this tutorial for it on youtube, which was very helpful because at first I kept getting confused about which side to paint next. It turns out it's just like doing a plait in real life!

I'm not 100% happy with how these turned out - the lines vary a bit in width and I prefer my designs to be quite regular. I know how to fix it for next time though, so I'm not too bothered. And they still look pretty cool!
Yesterday I got my three next China Glaze polishes I ordered! I'm about to put swatches of them on my swatches page, so keep an eye out for that. Here's some sneak peek photos of them!
Aren't they pretty?
Hope you like them, I'm going to get on to those swatches posts now :)
