Subtle Waterfall Nail Art

Hello readers! First of all, a big thank you from me for all of you who have recently started following my blog.  I passed the 100 follower mark this past weekend!  Today I have my first attempt at  waterfall nails to show you.  I love my teals, blues and purples and am lucky enough to work in an office that allows me to wear whatever polish I want but sometimes you need something a little more subtle.  I feel like this mani could be worn just about anywhere.

The above photos were all taken in natural sunlight.  I used an ancient Wet 'n' Wild polish as the base colour.  I  bought this when I was in elementary school at the dollar store.  I have no idea what the name is... all that's left on the bottle is a sticker with 425A on it.  For the waterfall stripes I used Julep Isla (a shimmery white), Darling Diva Polish When Doves Cry (a shimmery light grey) and China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets (a flecked bronzy silver).  I love how Gossip Over Gimlets shifts from silver to bronze depending on the light.  That's it for me today.  I have some new collections from some great indie makers coming up in the next couple weeks.  Time to get swatching!
