This week’s prompt for Nail Art Ideas Linkup is RAIN. I was racking my brain on this theme. I could not figure out what to do- massive creativity block! Luckily Kairi gave me the idea to do a waterfall mani. That’s perfect since I’ve never tried this technique before.
I used The Nailasaurus’ tutorial right here. I also added some raindrop shaped rhinestones that I got at a Harmon store. I like the added touch of the drops.
I don’t feel like typing out all the blue polishes I used. But I’ll tell ya that my white base is Zoya Purity. With one coat I got awesome coverage! That’s shocking for a white. The formula is a little weird- I think it will probably get really nice and stringy if you ever wanna do a sugar spun mani though. But even still, it’s nice and opaque. I just decided that I might use Purity all the time for nail art now when I want a white base color. I used to use OPI’s Alpine Snow all the time. But sometimes I had to use 3 coats and I don’t have the patience for that! 3 coats is normally fine for me… but not when it’s just my base color and I plan to do a bunch more nail art on top. Time is of the essence ladies, so I’m gonna use my Purity for nail art from now on. Then again, I go through phases, so next month I may have a new fave white!
Anywho, I hope you like my rainy waterfall nails. Check out the other NAILLINKUP nails right here:

agreed about purity! it is my go-to white base…even if it does get a bit thick. one coat is awesome
my Purity started chipping real fast… does that happen to you? or maybe I coulda had oils on my nails? I don’t always start painting with squeaky clean nails.
Purity lasts pretty well for me actually. Some Zoya polishes chip fast (Penny comes to mind), but not Purity. I’m going to guess its oil, but maybe you got a bad batch?
Maybe cuz i made it a really thick coat..
Very pretty. It takes 2 or 3 coats of my Zoya Purity for good coverage. Maybe I’m putting it on too thin?
I did slather it on kinda heavy!
These should have been Queen Elsa’s nails in Frozen! 😀 lovely
