Fishtail Braided Nail Art Step By Step Tutorial

Good afternoon readers! 🙂

Today I have for you a “Fishtail Braided Nail Art Step By Step Tutorial” 😀 ! This was FingerFood’s theme for the week, and as usual I decided to make a tutorial as I went along 🙂 .

For now I only have a picture tutorial, but I have actually made a video of it which I will be uploading on to my Instagram very soon 😀 – it is my first one so I am super excited to edit it and get it out there 🙂 !

Firstly, here is what my fishtail mani looks like:

Hopefully this lovely weather will carry on – it makes for much nicer pictures!

So what do you think of this nail design? It sure does require a lot of patience -_- ! It was my first time as well and I wasn’t overly happy with it – the perfectionist side of me would have liked the lines to be straighter and more even, but ah well 😀 ! 

Those familiar with this design may notice that I actually start from the free edge of my nail (which is the opposite to the usual way people do it), I just find this angle easier that’s all 🙂 .

Thanks for reading & I hope this is helpful for those of you who haven’t tried this design yet xo

  8. This looks amazing <3 And I actually like how you start at the opposite end of the nail in your tutorial and "braid" in the opposite direction. Usually, I see it going the other direction <3

    • Thank you <3 ! Yeah for some reason I find it easier going in this direction 😀 xx

  9. Brilliant tutorial hunny …..i am about to attempt one of these so glad I found yours ….great how you do this from the free edge down rather than the other way as I have seen ….Thank you …..going to try and find you on ig now mine is @lala_lacquer xxxx
