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?
