Pastel Tips vs. Waterfall ♥

Hello lovelies!

How are you today? ♥

I've had a lovely weekend, testing out our new blender, relaxing, having nice workouts, seeing a movie and so on. I'm pretty excited for a new week to start, because even though I have a ton of things to do, I also get to spend time with my parents as they're coming to visit us. That means lots of good food and some well-earned time away from school work. But I will keep posting at least three times this week as I have the pictures ready and only need to type a bit to have them ready for publishing.

Today, I wanted  to share another nail art post. Here I was recreating one of my old manis as well as trying a new technique. I hope you will like both of them.

So the first one is the recreation of my old mani a way back. I painted a neutral base for my nails and then added pastels on the tips. I have dona this before at least with neons, but felt like trying it again with softer colors. Also the matte top coat was a must for this look.

I used China Glaze shades Five Rules, Sweet Hook, Spring In My Step, At Vase Value, Grass Is Lime Greener and Metro Pollen-Tin. The matte top coat is from Born Pretty Store

I liked wearing this design quite a bit as it was simple but still pretty fun and colorful. It's kind of French mani with a twist, and very easy to try for yourself as all you need are at least two different colors. I painted mine with free hand, using the actual polish brushes so no fancy supplies needed at all.

Next up is a waterfall mani I have seen so many times on the Nailasaurus blog, and finally decided to try it myself. I gotta say, it was a lot easier than I expected, so it's pretty safe to say I will be doing it again, trying to perfect my technique.

I used so many colors that I can't remember all of them for the life of me, but I can tell you that most of them were again from China Glaze, with few exceptions. The only tool I really needed for this was a thin nail art brush, since it's pretty much just about drawing thin lines next to each other.

I really liked how this technique looks, and even though I feel I still have quite a bit to learn, I think this is a technique that is pretty easy to learn and even beginners could get away doing this kind of mani. I'm currently trying to learn a new technique to try, and I think splatter would be one of those in the near future. Leave suggestions if you know cool techniques so I can try them out!

So, I really hope you liked these manis, and they would inspire at least some of you to try new nail things out.

What do you think about these? Let me know in the comments below! ♥

Now, I'm heading to bed so I can wake up early to do some other blogging related stuff. I have some research to do so that I can write a proper post - once I do, I can link it here too so you can see what I've been working on lately. But, I will go now and be back soon. And next time, I think we will be talking about food.

Have a lovely day ♥

    1. Thank you. I think anyone can wear flashy nails, no matter what their age is. It's more about if one is comfortable with nails that stand out a bit more. :) ♥

  4. The waterfall nail design is my favorite one, it draws the eye trough the colors and I like that you added a little bit glitter to on it. The french mani is great too, I like the idea of different colored tips!
