Finished product looked like this:
How I did it:
What you will need:
- 1 Straw. A normal sized straw will work and possibly a smaller straw from a juice box. Large straws will not work for this.
- Piece of paper to practice on and work over top of.
- Base Color
- Splatter colors
- Cleanup brush
Step 1: Pick your base color and paint your nails with the base color. I used WnW French White Creme. Allow the base color to dry before moving to step 2.
Step 2: Pick your colors, for this I used 5 colors as pictured below.
Step 3: This step is optional and could be done several ways. I used scotch tape to tape off my fingers to limit the mess. I really hate taping off my fingers so I only did this for left hand and it honestly wasn't that bad cleaning up my right hand without taping it. I have also heard that you can use vaseline or chapstick to keep the polish from getting on your skin. Sine I was using pure acetone to clean up my mani, the cleanup didn't take very long.
Step 4: I use foil for this but you can use what every you want. Take one of the colors and put a drop or two of polish on the foil.
Step 5: Take your straw and dip it in the polish.
The polish should form a film on the tip of the straw and look like this:
Step 6: Take the straw and blow through the straw. I practiced on a piece of paper first to get a feel for how close the straw should be to the nail and how hard to blow. It really just takes a little practice to get a feel for it. After doing it a few times then move to your nails. I did one or two splatters of the first color on each nail and then did the rest of the colors in the same way.
Step 7: Using acetone, cleanup the edges where the polish spattered on your skin and cuticles. I have a tutorial on cleanup here. Top two are cleaned up and bottom two are not cleaned up:
