NAIL ART: Red & Pink Heart Waterfall Nails

by - February 07, 2022

Happy Mani Monday, my friends! Admittedly, as I sit here and write this, I am grasping pretty hard for the energy and inspiration to do so - but what else is new as this winter seems to go on forever? Anyone else feeling pretty deep in the seasonal blehs at the moment? Just me? Anyway, for February's #CBBxManiMonday theme, we're doing Pink & Red for, I believe, the third year in a row, and of course I had to lean into Valentine's Day for this first one.

For my base, I decided to use my new absolute ride or die favorite white polish - Jen & Berries Snowfall In Sunnydale. This polish is so good that I honestly have to resist the urge to gatekeep it... and I'm definitely going to have to get my hands on a backup because I know this is one of those polishes that I'm going to reach for constantly as a nail art base. 

This white polish is white crelly packed full of white and holographic flakes that perfectly captures the inspiration of the way that freshly fallen snow twinkles. As someone who grew up in love with skiing and Canadian winters, I definitely feel like this polish captures that particular inspiration better than any other I've seen. For this mani, I applied two coats to all of my nails and let them dry down.

I wanted to keep the stamping really simple for this mani using this image from Whats Up Nails B024 Love Is Everywhere. It's one of those waterfall type of images, denser at one end as though it's sort of sprinkling. I decided to go with a very sort of neutral, pale pink for my first layer and then followed with a rich berry red for my second layer to give a sort of confetti vibe. When I was placing my stamping, I tried to shift and offset the image as much as I could so that it didn't look too obviously like the same image layered twice.

Once I was happy with my stamping, I sealed it in with a nail art top coat and then finished with a generous layer of glossy top coat and voila!
