Nail Art: Braid

Last night I had a long battle in creating this nail art. A braid like nail art using three nail polishes from Caronia, Trance (metallic purple), Blue Chill and Baby Pink.



This is one tricky nail art but believe me I enjoyed creating them on my nails, thanks to the tutorial from Youtube.
 
 
It's really easy to make but because of several over coating of nail polish the drying time took longer than usual. I allowed the design to dry up first below applying top coat.

I was able to watch 3 episode of Me Too Flower (a korean drama) while waiting for it to dry before hitting the bed at 1 o'clock in the morning. 



Sorry for the photos, my hands were very untidy, I wasn't able to clean up the excess polish. I had to take pictures right away before I bump into something and damage my nails.

The two remaining photos below were taken a while ago, and some parts were already damaged.

Hmmm, I'm thinking to redo this nail art again and try different color combination. I have to get first the Caronia Gold Rush also from Bright Night Collection for a golden effects. wink*

  3. Wow! That's so pretty! I used to collect Caronia nail polish when I was in high school. I prefer the pastel colors then. But now, I seldom do nail polishing.

  4. My nails are so small that it would be doubly hard to do this hehehe... you really are good with nail art. I can only ogle but can't do that on my nails.
