Valentine's Splatter Nails

     In the spirit of trying nail art more often, I decided to try splatter nails. I've seen them done before, but never tried it myself. It seemed simple enough. Polish, a straw, and cleanup. How hard could that be? 


Polish Used: Zoya Barbie, Nubar Hot Pink, and Wet N Wild I Red A Good Book


     I started with a regular white base to make the colors pop. I started with the lightest pink and ended with the red. At first, it took me a few tries to get the splatter how I wanted it. I found that holding the straw further away from my nails gave a better result. I wasn't sure about it until I added the top coat. It really made a difference! 


      What do you think of this look? Have you tried splatter nails?

  4. This is one of the most pretty splatter nails I've seen, usually the attempts I've seen look like a mess. But this is really arty!

    1. Thank you! I'm going to try my hand at a few more combinations later on. I think the trick is to not glob on too much polish at once.
