Water(fall) Closet

This is the first time I decided to publish a waterfall design. Let me tell you now that if you've found yourself struggling with this design don't give up. My first attempts...OMG, I don't even want to think back to the nerves, tears and blaming the entire world for my less than perfect attempt. Try a different brush or a set of different colours or just give it a rest for a few days (months in my case). Or do what worked best for me in the end: pull your finger out! :p

The base colour for all the nails in Golden Rose Rich Color 135. When I picked it up in the shop I thought it was black but it's actually a really dark purple (although after 2 coats it looks black anyway). The colours I used for the waterfall effect are Bourjois Paris 12 Rouge Obscur, Golden Rose Color Expert 87, Orly Harmonious Mess, Miss Selene 259, OPI Samba-dy Loves Purple, Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 102. To apply the colours I used a striping brush that I got cheap online. It's not the best but I can handle it better now that my hands are a bit more experienced with brushes in general. Anyway I already ordered a nice set of brushes and just can't wait to use them! I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite which made the design super glossy and very hard to picture without my light box which I had to leave at home. I still like it though and hope you do too!
