40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Teal Fishtail Braid Mani

Happy Saturday, everyone! I'm back with the Crumpet's Nail Tarts to bring another week of 40 Great Nail Art Ideas! I was originally just going to participate in one half of the challenge but I think I lost my mind and decided a few days ago to jump in with both feet and do both halves, which means one mani every week for this year-long challenge! This portion of the challenge has everyone using the same color prompt, but with varying techniques. My technique this week is fishtail braid and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out! Especially since I have not done very many fishtail braid designs before.

I used all Colors by Llarowe polishes for this mani. My teal base is Go Rest High on That Mountain, which was created in honor of Leah Ann's nephew, Justin. Justin was killed by a drunk driver, taken from this world way too soon. All proceeds from the purchase of this polish go to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving).  It's a beautiful polish and such a worthy cause.


To create the fishtail design I used CbL Need for Speed and Memories of You (from the Fall Collection).  I did a little bit of a different take on a traditional fishtail braid mani and curved them. It kind of reminds me of waves or mermaid scales!


All three of these polishes are currently in stock at!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
