Did you have a good weekend? I sure did. I got to spend some time doing me stuff.I also can’t believe it’s downhill to the end of July. I really need to say that because it feels like I say that every month. Let me get on with it and get to the nails.
I have been wanting to do a waterfall like The Nailasaurus based on her tutorial. It’s no secret that I am not very skilled in freehand – especially working with stripers or brushes – so I was really nervous to try it. I didn’t exactly nail it but I actually really liked it. I do think it looks much better looking at it on my hands than it does so close up on a photo but hey 😉 Let me show you,
I started off with a base of 2 coats of China Glaze – Light as air. Once that was completely dry I used a nail art brush and alternated with 4 different colours. The colours I used were: China Glaze – Tart-y for the party, China Glaze – Gothic Lolita, China Glaze – Harmony and OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby. Topcoated and done.
I can see exactly what I did wrong and I tried to fix it as I went along but somehow my hands just don’t work the way I tell it to 😛 I have since gotten a new brush to try with and I know that if I practice more it will get easier. *sigh*. So, I have some ideas and some new tools. I am definitely going to try this again!
What do you think of my first try though? Have any tips on how to get my hands to work?
Thanks for reading,
