Essie DIY: Glitter Waterfall Nail Art
Glitter Waterfall Nail Art Tutorial
Hey there nail enthusiasts!
1 day left ’til Christmas!!! Woohooo!!
If you’re looking for a ridiculously simply way to add a little nail bling for holidays but you don’t want to go all out this one’s for you.
You can use any base color you’d prefer. I chose a dark chocolate brown called “Partner in Crime” by Essie with Summit of Style for my glitter waterfall both released by Essie in 2014. (ps.. 1 year later and both polishes are still in great shape)
Here the easiest way to get that glitter water-fall effect (as i like to call it)
Step 1: Apply your base coat
Step 2: Apply your chosen color for all your nails. I used Essie Partner in Crime
Step 3: Using a thin, long striping brush coat the brush with the glitter specs from Essie Summit of Style.
The key is to not saturate the brush with the glitter.
Step 4: Paint 3 stripes down your nails, leaving enough space between each stripe.
-Depending on how large your nail bed is you may need more or less stripes, but i painted 3.
Tip: It doesn’t matter if your stripes are uneven or not perfectly straight, because the clear coat covers up any wavy lines. 😉
Step 5: Seal in your fabulous glitter waterfall with 1 coat of your favorite dry fast top coat & voilla!
