Then and Now - Waterfall Mani!


Hey y'all! Today on the blog I'm showing you a "then and now" mani where I recreated one of my older manis to see if I could improve it. The original mani was one I did in a swap with +anas manis way back 60 weeks ago! Let me show you the older version. 



I daresay I've improved! I did the same technique in both manis, using a striping brush to create the waterfall effect. This time I used vampy fall colors - Zoya Veronica, Teigan, and Tomoko. I painted Teigan on my index and pinkie, and Veronica on my middle nails. Using the same striping brush that I used way back when, I made waterfall lines with Teigan and Tomoko and top coated with Essie Gel Setter to finish it off. I love how it turned out! 


Have you ever done a then and now mani? Its so fun to show yourself how you've improved over time. I have people ask me often how I paint my nails so well and I always have one answer: PRACTICE! So get out those paint brushes and paint, paint, paint! 

Thanks for reading!
