Waterfall manicure has been a hit recently because of its amazing colored stripes on the nails. It is mainly done with a number of lines with different colored nail polishes. The color in similar shades makes a unique design which is very trendy in nail art fashion. Let’s check out these stunning waterfall mani designs to get the one on your nails!
The only thing you will need to do these nail arts are the required colored nail polishes and a thin nail art brush. If you don’t have a thin one, you can also do it with your regular nail art brush but in that case you have to take limited amount of the polish when you are applying it on your nails.
When you are ready to start the waterfall nail art with your clean and dried nails, start with the first step to have a base coat. The coating must be smoothly done with a light color. If you want a darker one, you will need more vibrant colors in your collection to make the stripes visible. For beginner, starting with light color would be preferable.
After the base coat has been dried completely, start with your stripes. For stripes, you can select up to six colors. Using too much color can make it a mess. You can choose some similar shades to start with. If you are doing it for the first time, try with two colors to see the effect of the nail arts.
Put a blob of the polish you will apply first on a piece of paper. Start with the lightest colors for the stripes. Dip the tip of the thin brush on the blob and draw the stripes starting from the cuticle line. The lines have to be downward and keep some space left at the end to make the base color visible. Four lines will be enough to make the nail art perfect.
Vary the length size of the lines to create a texture. When you have already applied the first color, let it dry and start with the next color. Do it similarly by drawing the lines in different lengths on the rest of the nail. If you are working on more than two colors, continue the other colors in similar way.
Before you apply each different colored stripe, let the previous one dry completely so that it won’t get smudged and your nail art will become a cluttered. When you have applied all the colors, check it again from the cuticle line to see if there is any space left that need to be filled in.
Select any color which seems less on the nail to fill that area. Let the polish dried completely and then you can apply a top coat to make the nail art stay longer. To select the colors would be a tough job. You can either select similar shades of colors or you can choose random colors but they must make a great combo after they have been applied.
For summer nail arts, you can have the waterfall mani with a huge number of colors. You can do this by having a white base with different shades on different nails.
