Twinsie Tuesday: Splatter

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today??  Can you believe that tomorrow it is going to be July 1st?  Where has the time gone??  I feel like summer really hasn't started because it's been so cool and rainy.  I think our Spring and Summer seasons reversed or something.

Today is Tuesday which means it is time for Twinsie Tuesday.  Our theme this week is splatter!  I have never done a splatter manicure before so I was rather excited to attempt it.  I've done a hand splatter design where I draw out the splats using a dotting tool, but it was no where near as cool as the real thing!

Since the 4th of July is right around the corner, I decided to use the Look Nail Color 4th of July collection!  Let's see what I came up with!

Colors Used:
  • Look Nail Color - Oh Say Can You See, Rocket's Red Glare, and Broad Stripes Bright Stars
I started off with a base coat of Broad Stripes Bright Stars.  I'm always in the market for a new white polish since I go through so much of it.  This one is rather nice.  Applied perfectly in two coats.  I hate hate HATE when white polish takes three coats.  I feel it gets thick and goopy looking, so when I find a two coater such as this one, it is automatically a keeper.

When the base was dry, I took a coffee stirrer and dipped it into Rocket's Red Glare.  I then blew the red polish onto my nail creating the splatter look.  I did the same thing with Oh Say Can You See until I was happy with how they looked.

Since this is my first splatter manicure, I can't really tell you if these polishes worked better than another brand for the technique.  I think they worked perfectly.  Trust me, if they didn't this post would have been all about how much I hate splatter and how I will never do it again.  I'm actually excited to try it again in the near future!

I'm also excited to do another 4th of July manicure with these polishes!

What do you think?  Fan of the splatter manicure?  Something you've done before?
