31-Day Challenge #21: inspired by a color

I wasn't totally sure what "inspired by a color" means, so for today's mani I just picked a color I love and went crazy with it. :-P Teal is my favorite color besides purple, so I gathered a bunch of blue-green polishes and did a waterfall mani a la The Nailasaurus. Mine is not as neat as hers, because I used a bigger brush, but I like how it looks (it's quite waterfall-ish, don't you think?).

I started with a base of OPI My Vampire Is Buff, and did stripes of Essie Naughty Nautical, Color Club Age of Aquarius, Color Club Wild Cactus and Julep Lena, and accented it with OPI Goldeneye. I like how the off-white base looks like foam at the bottom of a waterfall!

And here's a bonus Trudy for your enjoyment:

  1. The gold just takes it from cool to over-the-top awesome! I love it.

  2. Really gorgeous, I must try waterfall design soon.

  3. I absolutely love the end results of your manicure. I too love Nailasaurus' manicure style, but yours is wonderful too-it truly looks like a waterfall to me!

  4. I think I like it better here with the thicker brush strokes. Very pretty!

  5. Wow, this design is s beautiful! I like the color you have used :-)
