Cocktail Brights Splatter

Good Morning!
Is it Friday yet? Nope Wednesday, damn. Well we're halfway there right?
Since the weather has been cold again I have very bright nails to share with you today! I was in the mood to do a splatter mani, but was unsure about what colour combination to use. So I headed over to Design Seeds and took a look at some of their combinations. I came across this one entitled Cocktail Brights and decided to go for it. Here is what the palette looked like.

From that this is what I came up with!

I wasn't sure what order to splatter my colours in so I followed from top to bottom on the palette. I started with Revlon's Bare Bones as my base. Then splattered Essie's Mint Candy Apple, Wet n Wild's The Wonder Yellows, Wet n Wild's Lavender Creme and finished with Essence's Let's Get Lost.

For those of you that aren't familiar with the splatter mani, it really is pretty easy, just takes a little time and a lot of mess. You start by painting a base coat. Then take a straw and dip it into a bottle of polish and then quickly blow onto your nail.Some people don't like dipping the straw directly into the bottle but instead dab some polish on a paper plate and then dip the straw in that. I'm OK with going right into the bottle. I found this time that if you aim a little off of your nail you get more of a splatter effect. When I was aiming right onto the middle of my nail it ended up being a blob on my nail and the cool splatterness was on my wax paper.

I really like how bright the outcome of this. Many people suggest that with splatter manis you should include black or white for definition, but I'm liking this without black or white! What's your opinion on adding black and white to splatters?

  2. I love the colors and the inspiration, perfect for spring. When I did my splatter mani I used white as base color, I should try all by itself cause yours look soo good.
