Fishtail Nail Tutorial

I've seen a few tutorials of this on youtube and its honestly one of my favourite nail designs to do! Heres how I did it.

A - Top/Base Coat. 
B - BarryM Berry Ice Cream
C -  All About Nails Snow.
D - Miss Sporty Silver
(Choose any three colours you want)
1- Start with a base coat to protect your nails from staining.
2- Choose one of the colours and then paint all your nails with that colour.
3- Choose your 'accent' nails, select one of the other colours and paint a diagonal stripe from the top of your nail to the middle of the other side.
4- Select your third colour and then do the same in the other direction.
5- Go back to the original colour and start again.
6 - Keep alternating with the colours and the side you stripe on until it looks something like this. (Image 6)
7- Once finished, top off with a top coat to seal it in and TA DA. (I reccomend you sit still for a while, with so many layers of polish it takes longer to dry then you may think!)

Will you be giving it a go?
