Since you guys love the waterfall looks as much as me, here's a tutorial detailing how I do it! It's a really simple process that I've explained as best I can in my previous posts but I know pictorials always shed a lot of light when it comes to nail art so I hope you enjoy it!
For this nail art, all you need is:
- A base colour and a selection of others for the waterfall. I'd say about 4-6 is a good number but it's entirely up to you!
For this tutorial, I used NYC Lavender Cupcake as my base colour and Sally Hansen Plum Luck, Rimmel Purple Reign, NYC Power of Elements and China Glaze Tart-y for the Party as my waterfall colours.
- A top coat of your choosing. My current favourite is No7 Stay Perfect.
- Acetone (not pictured) for cleaning your brush and cleaning up at the end.
- A nail art brush...
New Look, Topshop and directly from NPW online.
If you're looking to spend a little less, try out a nail art brush kits from eBay. They can be picked up for just a few £/$ and have a good selection of brush shapes and sizes for you to experiment with.
Start by painting on your base coat and letting it dry.
As you get to the end, lift the brush tip slightly away from the nail to get the tapered point on each line.
Take Colour #2 and paint more lines just to the side of Colour #1.
Colour #3 goes to the side of Colour #2...
...and so on!
Finally, add a top coat and use a nail art brush dipped in acetone to clean up around your cuticle line.
