Raindrop Nails | 3D Water Drop Nail Art

Play button
Raindrop nail art, no umbrella needed. This 3D nail design looks so realistic, and it's surprisingly simple to create! Base liquid is the key to these glossy water droplets and we love using an ombre background for even more dimension. 🌧️
PRO TIP: Make sure you thoroughly prep nails to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear! Push back cuticles, create a rough texture on the nail plate by filing, and sanitize thoroughly.

Step 1
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 1 Bond. Allow it to dry completely.
Step 2
  • To create this look we are using dip powders in the shades NA-27 and PA-03. For a smoother application, remember to thoroughly stir powders prior to use.
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip fingernail into NA-27. Tap finger to remove loose powder.

PRO TIP: Avoid getting the product onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base is applied.

Step 3
  • Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, lightly apply PA-03 on one side of the nail. Repeat to reach desired opacity.
Step 4
  • Use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder. Repeat dipping process for more coverage.

PRO TIP: Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.

Step 5
  • Apply Step 2 Base and immediately dip into Base & Finish powder.
Step 6
  • Apply Step 3 Activator and allow a few minutes for dip blend to harden.

Step 7
  • File & buff the nails until you’ve achieved the desired shape and smoothness.
Step 8
  • Wash hands or use a lint-free wipe saturated in alcohol to wipe nails clean.

Step 10
