Bright Braided Manicure

Hi everyone!

Braided/fishtail manicures are no new thang, but it's a cool design that I haven't tried before, so I wanted to give it a whirl.


The colour combination I chose is one of my favourites - pink, orange and yellow. The pink is China Glaze Wicked Style, the orange is China Glaze Papaya Punch and the yellow is Orly Spark.


This is a pretty simple design to do and I'm sure there's a few tutorials out there if you're interested in doing this on your own nails. Basically, you're just overlapping the colours diagonally all the way down the length of your nail.


The perfectionist in me wasn't too pleased with my execution of this design - my "braids" are just too inconsistent in size. I do like the overall look though, so I'll probably try this again in the future.

Have you tried the braided manicure?

  13. I LOVE these colours. Pink and orange are my all time favourites but I am loving the yellow and its usually a colour I steer well clear of. I think your execution is brilliant and you have inspired me to have a go myself tonight. If they look half as good as yours I will be pleased and add them to my blog xx

  27. Next to my "go to" which is galaxy nails, which I always do when I just can't decide what I want for the day...fishtails/braided manis are my fave! Only problem is picking the right colors and overlap with each other and work well together rather than just become a mess
