Wal-Mart Wednesday: Reverse Fishtail

Welcome to another installment of Wal-Mart Wednesday! Today I am excited to show you what I think is a new look, the Reverse Fishtail!

We've all seen the fishtail nail made famous by Sarah of Chalkboard Nails. So I decided to turn it on its head for a little reverse fish action. These were super easy to create, the hardest part will be clean up!

I started with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Co-Balt Blue. Then I used Pure Ice Silver Mercedes and leaving a third of my nail at the top swooped in down towards the middle of my nail. Then swooped down on the other side and filled in on either side. Then I used Sally Hansen White On to do the same thing about two thirds of the way down my nail. I felt like the white area was a tad stark so I went over it with Wet n Wild Break The Ice to add a little shimmer. Just follow this tutorial and flip it upside down to get the reverse fishtail look!

For my accent nail I did two coats of my favourite silver Sally Hansen Celeb City and then used loose blue glitter to create a snowflake!

I'm loving the reverse fishtail look and this is actually the second time I've worn it! I originally came up with it as an accent nail in a skittle look which I'll show you this afternoon! It's super easy and all you need is the polish brush. Nail art anyone can do! :D

What do you think of my reverse fishtail with a snowflake accent look? Is the reverse fishatil something you would try out?

Hope you're all having a fab day!
