NAIL ART TUTORIAL: FISHTAILING

Ceramic Glaze  is a new line of polishes exclusive to Shoppers Drug Mart here in Canada. The polishes are 3-free, made of exceptional quality and long lasting shine. There are 24 shades in total ranging from Pineapple Breeze yellow to Empire State glitter deep blue. Ceramic Glaze formula contains adhesives and plasticizers to secure polish to all nail types & to prevent chipping. The very first thing you’ll notice about this polish is the crazy high shine, even in the bottle. The same ingredients in porcelain and ceramic are in the polish to give it the same type of finish.The polish is also a little thinner than normal, preventing thickening of polish in the bottle.

The thinner type formula with great coverage and high-shine appealed to us for a nail art tutorial. We received three bright shades – a bright teal Watermelon Cooler, a medium pop of blue Santorini Blue & electric pink Exotic Dragon Fruit. We thought they would be perfect together to try a braided tutorial which we have always wanted to do!

IMG_0939Step 1: Begin by applying a base coat. Then take Exotic Dragon Fruit, this bright neon pink is perfect for our base colour.

IMG_0924Step 2: To create a braid/fishtail pattern, take your second shade – Watermelon Cooler and about 1/2 inch down your nail create a diagonal line .

ft1Step 3: Repeat Step 2 with your third shade – Santorini Blue. This shade brings it all together – a bright red based colour, a medium green and a darker shade blue.

IMG_0929Step 4: Continue layering the diagonal lines over each other. Remember to keep the same order of polishes. Once you’ve reached the very tip of your nail you are complete. Don’t forget to seal in your design with a top coat!

ft4What do you think of the fishtail pattern? It’s much easier when broken down step by step! Ceramic Glaze polishes are available now at Shoppers Drug Mart for $10.99 a bottle. Ceramic Glaze is manufactured by the same people as Seche Vite (we are crazy fan girls!), so if you are a fan of Seche Vite we recommend you trying it out!
