15. Splatter Nails

15 Grab a straw and do some paint splatters over that blue! One coluor, multicoloured, whichever you please! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, see this tutorial
I hadn't ever considered doing splatter nails before this challenge because I always thought they would be super hard to do.  I was SO wrong! They are really easy, the only downside is the clean-up but that's easy enough.

I decided to use a purple that one of my best friends bought my for my birthday. Maybelline's MNY in 553 (don't you just hate it when companies are too lazy to give their polishes names?! Such a pet hate of mine) is a gorgeous plum purple with a slight shimmer to it, although that isn't very clear here.

So on top of the blue mani from mani number 14 I added a splatter of 553 with a straw.  I found the technique of dipping the straw in polish and blowing through it very easy although it was kinda frustrating when the straw didn't pick up polish and all you got was air coming through. But when it worked it was marvellous!

I taped up my fingers to just below my nail so avoid getting polish all over my hands, but there was still a lot of clean-up to do around my finger nails.\

I really loved how every nail had a different design on it, and the colour combo was very vibrant and striking in real life. These pictures don't do it justice!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Very cool design! I like your color choices :)

    1. Thank you! I tried to pick colours that wouldn't blend into each other but still compliment :)
