Braided Nails?- Tutorial!

Yes! There is such thing as braided nails!  Braids will always be in when it comes to your hair but now, braids are in for your nails too! It sounds impossible but it is.  I fell in love when I first saw it and I hope all of you Beauties will too.  It is so simple to do and you can do it on both hands easily and it will work on all of your nails or just as an accent. This is also perfect for back to school which is just around the corner. 

Things you will need: 
3 different color nail polishes (metallics, neons, and darker matte colors work best), a base coat, a top coat, nail polish remover and cotton swabs (in case you get color on the skin), 

Step 1:
Paint a base coat on all of your nails so you won't stain them and also it will help keep your design on longer.

Step 2:
Paint your nails 2 thin coats of a nice metallic polish ( I used the color "Celeb City" by Sally Hansen)

Step 3:
Take your dark matte nail color ( I used the color "Thinking Of Blue" by Sally Hansen) and paint a thick diagonal stripe while rotating your finger and then do the same with your neon color ( I used "Coral Reef" by Sally Hansen) but the opposite direction as before making sure that the two colors  cross each other.

Step 4:
Now with the metallic color from before paint a diagonal stripe while rotating your finger directly below the dark matte color polish.

Step 5:
Paint another diagonal stripe of the dark matte color directly under the neon color and then paint a diagonal stripe of the neon color directly under the metallic and then a little metallic stripe below the dark matte color creating the illusion of braided nails.

Step 6: 
Add a top coat to make sure the design lasts and to give it a wonderful shine:)

That was the tutorial for the braided nails and I hope you try it out and let me know what you think.
