Twinsie Tuesday ~ Fishtail Mani

Purchased by Me Gift 

Hey dolls! I recently joined a group of ladies who create weekly themed manis called Twinsie Tuesday. This is a great group of bloggers, so I’m sure you are familiar with a few of them already. The theme for this week was fishtail mani. Definitely an interesting theme for my first Twinsie post. I recently purchased two more Bondi polishes when they had a BOGO free sale last month and I knew I wanted to pair them together. I started with a base of Bondi Brick Road, a bright yellow creme. The formula was decent for a yellow; streaky on the first coat and needed 1-2 more to fill in the patches. Brick Road did self-level relatively well.

I used the tutorial by Lucy’s Stash to create the fishtail. The other polishes used were Bondi Blue Skies and Zoya Trixie (gift).

Meh, I think this is ok. I love the way the colors look together, but the last layer of yellow is thick and goopy. That’s probably because I needed multiple coats of Brick Road for it to be opaque on top of the other shades. I’ve been wanting to try a fishtail mani for some time so I’m glad I got an opportunity, but I doubt I will do this again. Please be sure to check out the other Twinsies to see what they came up with!

  • Thanks love! I’ll have to try something else with this color combo.

  • This looks great! Especially for it being your first time! I’m a little scared to try a fishtail mani, so cudos to you for doing it and for getting a great result! I love the color combo too – it really allows the yellow to shine!

    • Thanks love! I think you have to chose colors that are really opaque at one coat. That’s where I messed up with the yellow. It’s such a fun shade though. Hope you try it soon!

      • Oh yeah good call! Ugh that’s annoying because I haven’t met a yellow that isn’t thin and a little streaky. Guess I won’t be using yellow if I try it haha :p
