Back To School Blitz: Fishtail Nails!

 This is a super easy nail look that looks good with lots of different color combinations. It also looks like you spent a ton of time on it, when really, it doesn't take a whole lot longer than painting your nails normally!
 As you can see, after the tutorial I added 2 more stripes to the very top because I thought it looked better like that!
 Also, I decided only to do it to my accent nail this time, but I will be trying it on all of them when I have more time!
 Here is a step by step tutorial. All you need is 3 colors! Then just alternate colors while alternating sides. Just look at the pictures from left to right and you will see exactly how. Also, I recommend using nail polishes that don't have a large or small brush. Medium size works best. It also doesn't matter which side you start on!
Pretty easy, right? And it looks amazing when you are done! Let me know if you have tried this before in the comments and if you do try this, please take a pic and tweet it to me so I can see how it turned out!
