Bright Fishtails

Hi all!

Sorry my lack of posting - I've been spending a lot of time at work/school trying to wrap some things up before I head out to Alberta for two weeks.  I haven't even been doing anything to my nails besides straight up painting, I just don't have the time.   I had contemplated doing a bunch of manis and scheduling posts for my two weeks away but it won't happen, so there will be yet another hiatus from me.  Hope you're all okay with that ;)

Here's a quick mani I did a few weeks back using Sarah at Chalkboard Nail's tutorial.  I loved how easy this was!

 For this look I started out with a base of OPI - Kiss me on the Tulips.  I ALMOST left it bare, I was loving the pink so much, but I went for the fishtails regardless and I was pretty happy that I did.

I then added the first fishtails pattern using OPI - Fly, and the tips were covered up with China Glaze - I'm with the Lifeguard, and amazing shimmery neon green!

The only downside to this mani was my impatience.  I didn't wait long enough for the polishes to dry between coats, and in the end it was way too thick and I kept getting dings at tips.  And I got a little bit of shrinkage too.  I still wore this for a couple of days though, occasionally fixing it up until it decided to completely crack on me so I sadly removed it.

Hope you all have a fabulous Thursday!
