To create this nail art look you will need a selection of pink and glitter polishes. The shades I used were Models Own 'Sun Hat', Illamasqua 'Harem', 'Seance' and 'Fire Rose', Avon Gel polish in 'Lavender Sky' and Graffiti Nails 'Butterfly Pink'.
Step 1: Begin by painting your nails in a base of dark pink polish and leave to dry completely.
Step 2: Taking some striping tape, create the braid effect by placing pieces diagonally across the nails.
Step 3: Take each pink and glitter polish in turn and fill in the gaps between the striping tape.
Step 4: Remove the tape to reveal your design and paint a layer of top coat to each nail.
And there you have your fishtail braid nail art.
I'd love to hear what you think of this nail art so be sure to leave me a comment below.
