Turquoise Waterfall Nail Art!

In Cult Nails, Dior, Illamasqua, Milani, Nails, Zoya by Jacki9 Comments

Hello, readers! I was able to take some time to put up a post tonight for you! It’s been crazy getting Hailey ready to start Kindergarten next week, and the hubby and I started watching Doctor Who on Netflix so every night we are watching that instead of me having nail time! Haha, its addicting.

Anyway, tonight’s post is a nail look I did last week. I followed this awesome tutorial by The Nailasaurus but went with one of my favorite color families–turquoise– for my version of the look!

My base is is Dior St. Tropez and I did the waterfall stripe lines in Illamasqua Muse, Zoya Zuza, Milani Quick Teal, and Cult Nails Let Me Fly. I also couldn’t decide on shiny or matte so I’m going to show you both and I’d love to hear what look you prefer!

Here are the shiny top coat pictures:

And the matte top coat pictures:

So what do you think? Which do you prefer: shiny or matte? Have you tried “waterfall nails” yet? Thanks for reading!

    Gaaawd.. it is so hard to decide. They look fabulous shiny, but there is something about that matte look. I think its the sparkle polishes and how they still glow.

    Hello, I think you did a beautiful job! I like both the version but in this case I think my favorite is the shiny one. 🙂
