The One With the Blue Gradient and Splatter Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Happy Wednesday polished world!  How are you all doing today?  Middle of the week is officially here which means Friday is right around the corner.  I apologize to my followers because this year I really haven't been off to the greatest of starts.  My posting schedule is all over the place and I keep forgetting to update my social media networks.  I need to get back into a blogging groove.

Today's manicure I think one of my all time favorite manicures.  Gradient + splatter + blue = perfection.  I used one of my new ORLY polishes from the upcoming spring collection for a base and it's just lovely.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • ORLY - Forget Me Not
  • OPI - Can't Find My Czechbook
  • OPI - My Pal Joey
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • INM - Northern Lights
Seriously guys, this is one of my all time favorite manicures!  I started off with a base coat of ORLY Forget Me Not, a pale baby blue polish.  I used two coats because I was going to put a gradient over it.  Some of the nails were fine though with two coats, if I was going to leave it plain I probably would have used 3 coats.  It's a sheer pastel, so that's to be expected.

When it dried, I did the gradient using Forget Me Not, Can't Find My Czechbook, and My Pal Joey.  I added a top coat of INM Northern Lights before adding the messy splatter.

To create the splatter, I took those coffee stirrers that are like a straw and first dipped one into a black polish and splattered the polish on my nail.  I then did the same using the white polish.  I love how the splatter looks different on each nail!  Truly makes the manicure look unique.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Think that this manicure is worth all the clean up??

Until next time, <3.
