Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge is oils. I decided to do a waterfall manicure to represent brushstrokes in an oil painting. nails-waterfall-sinful-colors-fly-away-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-oh-my-glitter-essie-lots-of-lux-born-pretty-store-BK-05nails-waterfall-sinful-colors-fly-away-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-oh-my-glitter-essie-lots-of-lux-born-pretty-store-BK-05The waterfall manicure was created and made popular by The Nailasaurus and she did a great tutorial for it here. nails-waterfall-sinful-colors-fly-away-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-oh-my-glitter-essie-lots-of-lux-born-pretty-store-BK-05I thought it would be a great idea to do the waterfall over a gradient, so I spent a while struggling with a gradient of Tip Top Cha Cha Cha, Beach Babe, and Fairy Dust only to cover most of it up, so you can only see Cha Cha Cha. nails-waterfall-sinful-colors-fly-away-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-oh-my-glitter-essie-lots-of-lux-born-pretty-store-BK-05I created the waterfall with a nail art brush and Sinful Colors Fly Away, Essence Colour & Go Break Through and Oh My Glitter!, Essie Lots of Lux and a green glitter polish from the Born Pretty Store – BK 05, which doesn’t appear to have another name.nails-waterfall-sinful-colors-fly-away-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-oh-my-glitter-essie-lots-of-lux-born-pretty-store-BK-05What do you think of my first try at creating a waterfall manicure?nails-waterfall-sinful-colors-fly-away-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-oh-my-glitter-essie-lots-of-lux-born-pretty-store-BK-05nails-waterfall-sinful-colors-fly-away-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-oh-my-glitter-essie-lots-of-lux-born-pretty-store-BK-05Tomorrow’s theme is abstract, and there are just a few days left in the challenge!nagg-igTake a look at the other ‘oils’ manicures at the link:
