Mocha Fishtail with A-England and Essie

I gotta tell ya...I'm not cartwheeling over today's mani. It just doesn't have the oomph I was expecting. Instead it has this mushy, soft, hot cocoa feeling to it...which is good too...just not what I was after. I used the popular fishtail technique. There are tons of great tutorial videos out there. (Here is the one I followed.) For my three colors, I chose Essie Jazz, Essie Cool Merino and A-England Galahad.

In spite of my unrealized expectations...this is still a really pretty, strangely neutral mani. I wore it for two whole days! [shocker]

There's a lot you can do with this design. I'd like to try a version with just one color but three finishes...like matte, shiny and glitter. Anyone ever tried that?
