Indian Lacquer Lovers Nail Challenge (#ILLnailChallenge) Week 9- Try a New Technique

Hello guys, here I am with yet another week of a nail art challenge by Indian Lacquer Lovers and the theme for this week was "Try a New Technique" and I was planning to do fish tail braid mani for a long time and so I tried to do this mani for this week's theme. This is how it turned out

I saw various videos on you tube as to how to do this mani because it seemed to be complicated to me but when I saw the videos I felt that its not that tough. I thought of giving it some twist and so I used a matte polish and gold foil to achieve the look.
The red polish I have used is of Kleancolor and the name of the polish is 'Light Red'. For the matte effect I have used the matte top coat 'Matte Magic' by China Glaze. The foils are from Born Pretty Store. 
The braids have not turned out perfect in all the fingers but the middle and the pinkie finger looks nicely braided. 

The pictures have been taken in dim light so are not that good. I have not applied a top coat as it would have ruined the matte effect. So this effect can be achieved with many combination and would look good. Hope you liked my experiment, do lemme know by leaving comments below.

xoxo
