The Digit-al Dozen DOES Monochrome, Day 5: Sideways Waterfall Nail Art!

Press Sample

Good morning, readers! It's a cold day here in my area of Florida, so I thought a holo would brighten it up a bit! I really wanted to wear Literary Lacquers Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster this week (especially after Debbie from The Crumpet labeled it her favorite polish for the year!), but also didn't want to cover it up too much. I decided to go with a "sideways waterfall" design, hoping it would give just a little added fun to an incredible base color without covering it all up.

My camera is being frustrating and it making this much more blue toned than it is. Literary Lacquers Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is a gorgeous "vibrant turquoise blue linear holographic polish with added fine holographic glitter." It applied beautifully and this is 2 coats as the base color.

Then, I added some lines for the "waterfall" design sideways, the normal way is shown in this tutorial by The Nailasaurus. I used: A-England Galahad, Elevation Polish Jengish Chokusu, Elevation Polish Muztagh Ata, and Illamasqua Venous for my lines. 

Here is a sun shot I took from my phone, the color is much closer to this photo below than the other two. Look at that gorgeous holo AND the glitter! I love that combination.

What do you think? Do you have any Literary Lacquers? I have a bunch I'm slowly trying out and I love them so much!! 

Literary Lacquers can be purchased at their Etsy Shop for $10 each! I have a ton to share with you in the near future, so keep an eye out! Don't forget to like their Facebook Page for updates on restocks.

Pin It!


  1. No longer waterfall. It's now "windswept"! Looks great! I'm currently waiting to get my paws on two LLs. can't wait!

  2. This is awesome - don't think I've seen a sideways waterfall before.

  3. Yeah, you are definitely the first sideways waterfall (or windswept!) mani I've seen, and I LOVE IT! Even more than the regular, I think!

  4. Love your take on the waterfall! I was gifted this beautiful polish in secret Santa exchange in December and really need to wear it soon!

  5. Very cool! Your polish choices are perfect!

  6. This is super gorgeous... a perfect January mani!

  7. Totally agree with previous comments - I ADORE this being 'windswept' from the side. So lovely!!

  8. I don't have any Literary Lacquers yet but now I definitely want that one! This is really spectacular, and I think you did the perfect art to accent but not overwhelm.

  9. The windswept look and the colors make is so icy! I love it!
