First Fishtail Mani

I've had the tutorial from Lucy's Stash saved on my laptop for months, but I never got around to trying it for one reason or another. I did finally try it, and it took about three tries to get it right as I kept forgetting what colour I had to use next. Also it got a bit off centre after a while, but I still happy with the way it came out, it makes a great accent nail, I just need to practise it.
I used Opi Dutch Ya Just Love Opi as a base colour on all nail except for the thumb and pinky, which I used China Glaze Man Hunt. I used Dutch Ya Just Love Opi, Man Hunt and Sally Hansen Navy Baby for the fishtail using the tutorial in the link at the top of the post. I added stud to the rest of the nail and topped everything off with China Glaze Fast Forward.

I tried to use only polishes with the same finish for the fishtail, but I couldn't find any colours that looked right with each other. So I ended up with two shimmery polishes and one creme, but I still think that they good good together.
