Manicure Monday - Splatter Nails!

Well now that Game of Thrones is over, I had to switch to old episodes of The O.C. to watch while I do my nails!

My inspiration this week is: splatter nails!

These are fun to do - they can get a little messy, but I love the end result! 

Here are the products I used this week:
My Manicure Monday Products
I used:
  • Formula X nail cleanser, base coat & top coat
  • Formula X cosmic - plum pearl
  • Julep in Evie
  • Sally Hansen in Wet Cement
  • Straw & paper towel  


Here are the steps:
1.Paint the base of the nails in a lighter color (i chose grey), & I also chose my 2 splatter colors to be accent nails instead of all 5 splatter. So I painted my thumb, pointer, and ring finger in grey, my middle finger pin, and my ring finger purple.
2. Wait until the nails are dry and splatter. I paint the bottom of the straw, making sure a little polish is covering the opening. Blow on the opposite end of the straw over the nail. (maybe practice a few times if you are unsure - it takes a couple of tries to get used to!)
3. Complete on the nails as many times as you like. It will be a little messy and requires some clean up.

Here is what it will look like:

  So, a little messy - but I think once you clean it up they look so fun! Here is my result:
