Nailasaurus Waterfalls

Hi, everyone!
I've been watching the evolution of Sammie at Nailasauraus's Waterfall nails.  Wow, they're just stunning!  When she posted a tutorial, I decided I would give the style a try.  You start with a base color (in this mani Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet) and paint in the lines in varying colors with a long nail brush. 

I used five different colors for the lines: Sinful Mint Apple, SH Insta Dri Blue Blast, Sinful Midnight Blue, SH The Real Teal, and the very beautiful metallic Nicole Mer-Maid for Each Other.

The execution wasn't as difficult as I imagined it would be.  I think the trick is a steady hand (obviously not me!), a good brush, and an eye for color (okay, that's a couple of tricks!).  I think it's the color selection that really sends the design over the top - have your seen Sammi's Fiery Waterfall? ...sigh.... Polish genius!

So...what do you think?  Is this style on your To Do list?

Yes it is. I have two color combos in mind for this design. White, black, silver and red. And cream, brown, pink and gold. I bet it would look cute with a white base and neon polishes.

I love this look! The colors you used in this look great, too :) Definitely going on my must-try list!

Thank you! Definitely give it a try. I was intimidated at first, but it wasn't as hard as I thought!
