To make fishtail braids a little more interesting, I sometimes add in a few smaller regular braids inside. I do this by making maybe three or four really thin braids underneath both separate sections of hair and incorporate one or two of those braids in the section of hair I bring to the opposite side. I also sometimes add clip-on hair extensions to add a bit of color. Small, decorative hair clips are also a nice touch. I like to use those with a messier fishtail braid and a few of those smaller braids for a great bohemian summertime look.
