Today marks the start of the Oh Mon Dieu Part Deux challenge hosted by Crafty Nail, Brijits Digits, Eeeek! Nail Polish!, and Nail The Accent! I’ll be trying to keep and post everyday for the month of July so except a lot of posts this month. You guys know that I can’t say no to a challenge! MUST. DO. ALL. THE. CHALLENGES. No, but seriously, it’ll be fun!
Let’s get onto the nails!
Why not start off a new challenge with a new nail art technique? This is my first attempt at splatter nails!
Here’s what I used:
I always get nervous when a challenge calls for a specific shade of a color because I never know if the polish I chose is actually accurate. I know, weird but seriously. Google is no help usually. I lucked out this time though and had a polish with the color in the name! (:
So, these nails started with 2 coats of Mint Cream. I then dipped drinking straws into my bottle of My Vampire Is Buff and blew quickly into the straw to get the splatter. These was followed by the black. This is by far one of the messiest things I have ever done and it was hard! I think I got nail polish on everything within a 5 mile radius of my desk…
My splatter-y nails aren’t really all that splatter-y but I like the effect. I’m not sure this is something that I’ll attempt again soon but splatter nails can be crossed off my to-do list!
Here’s the challenge graphic:
