Waterfall Nails

Hello ladies (& gents),

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend in the sun? It’s just started raining here which is welcome as I was so busy today and the clammy heat was the last thing I needed. I thought I’d share with you a manicure I tried out midweek (and it’s still going strong).


So I first saw this manicure on thenailasaurus and had to give them a go. I wasn’t in love with my first attempt, but I did get some lovely feedback so tried again.

Waterfall thumb nail

It’s actually a really easy technique – anyone with a striping brush can easily achieve great results – and as I hadn’t shared my results here on the blog I thought I’d better give it another go.

Plum Waterfall

The colours I chose are perhaps more Autumn/Winter but I was a little bored of all the bright neons and pastels. I felt like I’d neglected my purples so I used Estee Lauder Insolent Plum as my base with a dramatic metallic combination of No Place Like Chrome and Nothing Else Metals both by Essie.

Waterfall Manicure

So what do you think? Are you a fan of the waterfall mani? Are you bored of the summer colours yet (or is that just me)?
