Shades of Pink Braid

So…maybe not my best work ever! It doesn’t help that my nails themselves look wonky with this many layers of colors. Whoops!


This art was inspired by Nuthin but a Nail Thing, although let’s be honest, her’s looks much better! And more colorful.


I should have used more intermediate colors. I went straight for my darker pinks, and that was definitely a mistake! Live and learn.


~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Lightest pink: ULTA – Babydoll
~ Light pink: Wet n’ Wild – Tickled Pink
~ Pink: Revlon – Bubbly
~ Coral: Essie – Sunday Funday
~ Red: Pure Ice – Siren
~ Dark red: OPI – All I Want for Christmas (is OPI)
~ Darkest red: OPI – Visions of Love
~ Dark purple: Station – Happy Wine-y People
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


Hope you enjoyed! I am back in lab this week (which is to say NOT the hospital) and I couldn’t be more excited. Lab >> hospital!

  4. […] no, I’m not talking about hair!). Earlier this week, I saw Flight of Whimsy’s beautiful braid manicure and got inspired! So today, I decided to put in a little more effort and try both these techniques. […]
