Neon Waterfall Nails

Man I am a horrible blogger *hangs head in shame* I'm not going to make any promises about the future. I am going to try and get myself to post more, but I guess it will happen when it happens. So on to my nails...

I've been seeing "waterfall" nails for awhile and I finally decided to give it a try. Here is my inspiration:

The Nailasaurus seems to have started this look, I may be wrong but I still love it. If you click the picture it will take you to all of her Waterfall nails and a tutorial. 

Here is my try at it, but first please excuse my dry and ugly cuticle and I missed a little bit of clean up. It was late when I was doing them and I was tired. Please forgive me my sins lol. Ok here goes:

 For the base I used Sinful Colors "Skylark" it is a great polish. The formula was smooth and almost totally opaque in one coat. I did two for good measure.I really like the color, I'm not really sure how to describe it, but I don't like I really have anything else like it in my collection.

 Using a striping brush I went through the colors I had picked out and placed random strokes on each nail.

 After I had used each color I went through them again to fill in any gaps I had. The polishes I used were:

 China Glaze "I'm With The Lifeguard" One of my favorite neon greens.

 China Glaze "Hanging In The Balance"

 Essie "The Lace Is On" This is a BEAUTIFUL purple polish. I just loved it even just seeing it as a few strokes on my nails.

 China Glaze "Pool Party"

 Revlon "Hypnotize"

 Sinful Colors "Glimmer"

 After I finished I decided to add a coat of "Northern Lights" topcoat because I love sparkle :)

 All in all I like how it turned out. Both hands turned out a little different. /\ my right hand
\/my left hand
 I like my right hand a little better because I made the stroke a bit longer. The left hand looks like too much of the base color is showing.

I really like how this turned out and I plan on trying it again in the future with different colors. Make sure to check out The Nailasaurus's blog to see some great nails!

Thanks for reading and I hope to post again soon.
