Nail Art Experiment ...

So I've been trying out nail art for about six months now and I LOVE it. Unfortunately my love does not automatically equal talent. But hey ho,  it hasn't stopped me from experimenting yet!! 

Here's my latest experiment, the fishtail braid nail art. I had no idea that this was even a trend but I love it! And even for my novice attempt I think it still looks fab and I got a load of compliments - it's an easy way to have attention grabbing nails! 

I did this one with Maybelline Forever Strong Pro Gold and Express Finish Red and Black - I was totally in love with the Maybelline colours but the quality isn't great now - the Forever Strong is still great but after a few months the Express Finish seems to have dried out a bit and got gloopy - which made this a bit more difficult, hopefully when I try it with my next batch of China Glaze - when it shows up - it will be easier so look a bit neater.

I followed the tutorial on Swatch and Learn which is currently my favourite blog - full of great nail art and swatches of everything! Unfortunately it's another American one - I'd love to start finding more UK blogs where we have more in common makeup wise and can discuss the same stores etc! 

Anyway this was so simple! Go ahead and post pics if you try it yourself :) 


  1. This looks so nice! I might try it myself :)

    1. Thanks :) You definitely should - it's so much easier than it looks! And it's a great way to try loads of new colours at once ;) Bx
