GGNAC - 1 (Think Pink)

No, I have not lost all ability to spell, GGNAC stands for Girly Girl Nail Art Challenge, and today is the first day! WHOOOO! Okay, let's just jump right in...

So, for today's challenge, Think Pink, the instructions were to "Wear your favorite pink nail polish and nail art". Those of you who know me may know, favorites are just not something I generally have. How am I supposed to pick just one of something?! Basically, I hardly ever have favorites so needless to say I don't have a favorite pink. I do however have a pink I love and that's Orly - Passion Fruit. I have used this like 3 times I think (okay I take that back, I've posted about it a total of 4 times not including the instagram photo I posted. Here, here, here, and here is where I used Passion Fruit before.) and even one other time with Pacific Blue (the last "here" above) which I hadn't realized before I did the mani.

Anyhow, you've probably seen the fishtail mani a lot recently but this is the first time I've done it on my blog! I did it on my pinky finger just because one other time but this is the first time I've done a whole mani using the technique! I think this looks much harder than it actually is. I alternated the order of colors (blue then silver on index, silver then blue on middle...) which got a little confusing sometimes but I'm really happy with the way this turned out! Also, I'd recommend using all opaque colors when doing this. I didn't and I had to layer Passion Fruit a few times which was a pain. The blue is Sally Hansen - Pacific Blue and the silver is Essie - No Place Like Chrome

What do you all think of this mani? Do you like this color combination?
