Mani Monday: Fishtail Nails
This week, it being half term, I have a little more time on my hands (excuse the pun, that wasn't even remotely intentional) so was able to try out the fishtail manicure I saw at Lucy's Stash. It wasn't really tricky at all, but I did make the error of using 4 colours rather than 3 so it didn't have quite the same effect. I used all Barry M polishes: NP66 (White), GNP5 (Blueberry), GNP2 (Blackberry), NP319 (Silver Foil) and NP54 (Clear Basecoat, Topcoat and Nail Hardener). I've been using the clear topcot a lot recently because it really keeps polish chip free for a good few days - but it is irritating in that it doesn't ever seem to harden completely. I put this on on Sunday and I can still indent it if I put a nail into it. Maybe I need to really let the coats underneath dry completely completely. I don't know - if you have any thoughts, let me know in the comments below!
