I’m really enjoying trying out new (to me) nail art techniques, I realized that by only doing nail stamping I was missing out on loads of other fun nail art stuff! So here is another first for me, Waterfall nails!
Silver Waterfall Nails
I used, Deborah Lippmann – Modern Love, Deborah Lippmann – Hit Me With Your Best shot, Sinfulcolors – Time Off, Illamasqua – Snap, Nails Inc – Old Bond Street, Barielle Shades – Night Moves and China glaze – Cosmic Dust.
I started with a base colour of Modern Love from Deborah Lippmann, starting with the darkest colour using a fine brush, I painted on the stripes, making sure that each colour has stripes of different lengths.
It took quite a while to finish but I really love how this turned out! and I’m going to be trying this again with different colours! 😀
As I was still feeling grumpy over having to cut my nails right down, I decided that the only way to make myself was to buy some more nail polish 😀
Deborah Lippman Polishes
The colours are black which is called ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’, the Nude is ‘Modern Love’ and the Blue Glitter is ‘Across The Universe’.
Hit Me With Your Best Shot
This is a really lovely colour, I was surprised that it is actually a frost finish rather than a metallic, the formula is lovely if a little thin, very fast drying, which is lucky as this was four coats.
Modern Love is a really nice nude colour, It has an almost grey tone, which I really love as I find most nude shades to be to pink or peachy. The Formula for this polish is fantastic, it is creamy with out being to thick, and flows easily from the brush, it’s really well pigmented and this took two coats.
Across The Universe
Across the universe is a lovely dark blue jelly polish with green and light blue hex glitters and mid blue micro glitters. I will recommend at least two coats of base coat with this one, the glitters seem to be extra sticky and it was a pain to remove, even with the foil method! But it’s worth it as this polish is lovely! I used three coats. The amount of glitter in this polish means it is easier to dab the polish onto the nail rather than to use longer strokes.
I have to say that I am feeling a bit better about my short (er) nails now!
