  3. I love Ashley's fishtail braid...I'm working on doing one on myself. I love the bright colored nails but know that I'm much more likely to sport something nude or metallic.

  5. I think Ashley Tisdale looks great! I love the fishtail braid. My constant nude nailcolor is Essie adore-a-ball. Perfectly pink to help prevent me from looking too washed out, which can easily happen with other nudes. ;)
