NOTW | Waterfall Manicure

This week, I chose a very summery colour for my nails and I tried a waterfall manicure for the first time. Basically, a waterfall manicure consists in painting different coloured lines in different lengths along the nail up to the middle to create a waterfall effect. Read on for the full tutorial!
1. Prep nails with a base coat and when dry follow with two coats of a bright red polish. I chose Essence Colour & Go in 115 Redvolution.
2. When thoroughly dry, begin drawing the 'waterfall' lines in colours that complement the base colour. I have used gold (Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold), orange (Essence Cute As Hell T.E. 02 Bad Girl) and a deep red (Essence Colour & Go 113 Do You Speak Love?). A fine detailing brush is best to carry out this part.
3. To add the flowers, use a small angled brush dipped in white polish (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 300 White On) and gently press onto the nail to form a five-petalled flower. Repeat to create another flower higher up.
4. Using a dotting tool, place a dot in the same bright red colour in the centre of the flower on the lines and using the dark red, repeat this step for the higher flower.
5. Seal with a top coat and you're done!
