You guys. I forgot how messy and time-consuming braided nails were. I thought these would be fast and easy and I was WRONG. Of course I also had to go make it much more complicated for myself. However, the end result was rather cool (if somewhat messy and very time consuming)! And please ignore my pinky, the lines got all skinny at the end

I started with a teal braid. Most of my braids were off-center, some were SEVERELY off-center. So I decided to fix it by adding lines of similarly toned purples. That did add some fun variety, but it also somewhat exacerbated the problem. So on the two most egregious nails (my thumb and ring finger) I went back and added a weave! I made it up as I went, but it looked pretty cool when all was said and done. Then I added more purple to the weave (Oy Vey). Anyway, hope you enjoyed! I think this ended up being more time-consuming than it was pretty, but so be it!
