Good morning readers! I recently tried a waterfall mani and it was so easy and pretty that I had to do it again! But this time I did it in a skittlette that was inspired by the awesome Jacki over at Adventures in Acetone. She has been doing some truly gorgeous skittlettes and I drew my inspiration from one that she recently did - you can see it HERE!
So here's my take on it! I started with the Dior Samba and Bahia duos which were the polish addition to the Birds of Paradise summer makeup collection. They came in 2 sets with 2 mini bottles each. The Samba Duo consisted of a foily/metallicy peacock teal (794) and a dusty mint green creme (402). I used 2 coats for each polish and they both went on like butter - as I have come to expect from Dior polishes. I also used the medium blue-teal creme from the Bahia Duo (792). It went on smooth and easy and covered my nail in 2 coats. I then created a waterfall mani on my accent nail using a nail art striping brush. I also used flocking powder on my pinky to create a fuzzy nail effect. I dipped my wet nail into the pot of flocking powder and pressed it down firmly. I shook and blew off the excess and my nail cam out looking like a blue stuffed animal! I used 1 layer of topcoat on the polished nails (not the fuzzy nail).
