#31DC2013 – Honor Nails you <3

It’s pretty cool to be able to post so early in the day!

I work in tourism, and as you can imagine, it’s pretty quiet in October. So my boss is letting me work from home a couple of days a week – and it’s awesome! I get so much done! And best of all, that saves me over 2 1/2 hours in the train. So hi guys!

Well, today is the last day of the challenge. I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t manage to do it every day. Sometimes real life just doesn’t go how you hope. But I had a lot of fun, tried some new techniques, and discovered some new blogs to follow!

Today I’m using the Nailasaurus’ awesome rainbow mani. She does a few waterfall manis, and this was just spectacular, I’m sure I’m not the only one to have chosen this mani to recreate!


That’s a lot of colours! So to save time, I didn’t use nail polish for the ‘waterfall’, I used acrylic paint. I put a few drops on a palette and mixed them about to make all the colours. Unfortunately my blue is pretty dark, and it looks like it’s not a ‘true’ blue since the purple came out brownish. Still, I just love the effect, and hopefully if I try it again some time, I’ll be able to get more even, straighter lines 😉


See what I mean about the purple? Still, the indigo came out awesome, and all the other colours worked really well – and since I used acrylic paint, I just rinsed it out of the brush, it wasnt too messy.

    Ah this reminds me i have to finally buy a solid white nail polish. I ould only need it for a nail art thing, as i never use white for “normal” swipe …
    your nails look great as usual.

    • Thanks honey!
      Actually this is an off-white, they are just as good for nail art, and a bit easier to wear in my opinion 🙂

        Well i never have those “basics” handy, since i never use them…if you know what i mean. But i wanted to try out a few things this fall, even if i’m not as good as all of you nail art bloggers. But i’m having fun with it, ones i sit down. So i should get a white, maybe a basic pink and blue.

  3. I looove those waterfall nails, so impressive, and Nailasaurus does them amazingly. I love your off white background, makes it look super chic, not, oh I don’t know, plasticky? I was shooting for a compliment. Love the mani!
