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:
