Splatter Nail Art

I saw a couple blogs that had some splatter nail art and decided to try it myself... I am in love with this new nail art technique. I attempted water marbling once and it turned out horrible and I hated doing it and I haven't done it since. I did one hand with water marbling and then took it off immediately because it was such a horrible mess. This technique makes up for my failure at water marbling and so much more!!!! I will post a picture tutorial on how to do this tomorrow so be sure to check back! Our summer camp at the daycare started this week and I wanted to have fun colorful nails for the first day so this is what I ended up with:






My pointer finger and my middle finger are my favorites! The thumb turned out really cute too! These are like little works of modern art on my nails. Each one is different and unique. This technique is very fun to do as well :) Find out tomorrow how I did this!  For this mani I first painted my nails with Wet N Wild French White Creme. For the splatter I used Jordana Pink Romance, Purple Bright, Boy Oh Boy, and Rich Green. I also used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lightening for the yellow.

I am so in love with the Jordana polishes. I bought them from CherryCulture and if you can you should try these polishes. All of the colors that I have are such rich colors. The consistency of this polish is perfect and so far every one that I have is a one coater. These polishes are just so perfect... I must have more of them! Here are swatches of 5 Jordana Colors that I have:

From left to right: Rich Green, Boy Oh Boy, Burnt Sugar, Purple Bright, and Pink Romance. Aren't these Gorgeous?? Also in the next couple of days I will be posting more on my new color wheels like the one in the picture above!

  5. Super great mani for daycamp! I've seen this on some blogs recently as well and really loved it. I do enjoy water marbling but since mine never turns out as good as Colette's (all hail the Queen!) I don't do it often. I'm trying to do it at least twice a month for practise though. I think after Pink Wednesday I'm going to give this a try next! I wonder if you can use the chunky glitter for this technique?

  8. I love this!! I wonder how metallic polishes would look on a black base?! I may have to try it!
    Oh and I saw a whole Jordana display at K-Mart... so maybe they're not just online. None of the colors looked super unique to me though so I didn't get any. Now I wish I had!

  10. Ok so I just tried this and failed...I can't get the polish to stay in the middle of the straw long enough to blow it out...any tips or tricks?

  11. Amber, maybe try using a thicker polish. The polishes that I used were pretty thick. The one was an insta-dri and the others were thick creme polishes. Let me know if that makes a difference. Also a large straw will not work. Try a different straw.

  12. You can start with nail art at home by using a nail art kit which includes a thin nail brush and nail colors. Nail brush is used aesthetically and gently on your nails to create variety of designs. You can use various designs which are found on the internet or create your own.
