Hey there everyone ! Another late post again I'm afraid, I was up late last night and had barely any sleep, so I've been napping this afternoon and didn't do my nails until gone 7pm. But never fear, today's mani is a new technique in my repertoire, and I'm really excited to share it with you !
Ta da ! My first ever splatter manicure ! I have tried to do splatter designs before, but I could never get the technique right and I hadn't sussed what sort of polishes to use, and generally ended up with giant splodges of polish that didn't resemble anything much at all ! I had originally planned to just do a nude colour with pink splatter, but I ended up going completely mad and went for three different colours !
For this design, the polishes I used were OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh ?, Barry M Pink Flamingo, Barry M Yellow and Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream. When it came to the actual splattering, I didn't end up dipping my straw in a blob of polish on my workspace, but instead I just painted the polish straight onto the straw, which worked great for me !
So there we are ! I really like this mani, although I think the colours would have "popped" more had I used a white base (but I'm trying to refrain from using any white as bases at the moment, until my Seche Restore arrives, that is) ! Have you ever had any problems with splatter manis ?
Enjoy the rest of your day everybody !
