Neon Splatter!

Hi guys! Today I have a super fun look for you! Do you remember blow art pens?! This is pretty much the same idea! It's been labeled a "Splatter" Mani, and is very easy to do! Here is a tutorial from Jessica's Nail Art. Basically, I painted my nails white, using China Glaze's "White on White". Then, I used scotch tape around the edges of my nails to have easier clean-up (similar to the way to tape off your nails when water marbling). After that, I picked a few bright polishes and put a drop into a paper bowl. I dipped the end of a coffee stirrer straw into the blob, aimed it over my nail, and blew into the other end of the straw, shooting the nail polish onto the nail in a splatter design. There is no right or wrong way to do this, and each nail will look a little different! You can combine colors however you like, and once you add a top coat (I used Seche Vite), everything is smooth and pretty! I can't wait to try this with different colors and using different bases! Let me know if you decide to try it! :)

The colors I used are: Orly Purple Crush, Orly Passion Fruit, Essie Brazilliant, and China Glaze For Audrey


This bottle is Orly Passion Fruit, and is pretty true to color. I can't believe how orange it pulled in the picture below!



Thanks for reading! :)
