Last month while I was catching up on other nail blogs one day, I can across this absolutely gorgeous splatter manicure by Jen from The PolishAholic and I totally fell in love. I knew I was going to have to try it out myself - and while my results aren't quite as fantastic as hers, I was still pleased with the first attempt!
For this splatter mani, I started out with two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Black Out for the base, then used Nicole by OPI "Baby" Blue and Nicole by OPI I'm A Belieber as my two splatter colors. The way to create this look is to get a bit of your polish color on the end of a straw, aim it at your nail, and them blow a quick puff of air to splatter the paint onto your nails (and the surrounding area, haha... I recommend something disposable to do this over).
I had a bit of a tough time getting the polish to splatter nicely (or at all) in the beginning, but with a bit of practice I started to get the hang of it more and more. Some nails turned out much nicer than others, and I am hoping that next time I try out this technique I will get even better results. But for now, these were really fun nails that I got a lot of compliments on! If you are interested in creating your own splatter mani, there is a great tutorial at The PolishAholic that helped me. :)
