Splatter Nails

This is third manicure in the series of five colorful manicures I am doing for this Holi. Holi is a religious spring festival celebrated by Hindus as a festival of colorsToday I decided to do splatter nails. Splatter Nails are very easy to create and they look pretty colorful.

How to Create it:
Paint your nails with a base color and let it dry completely. Cover around your nails with a tape to avoid the mess. Put 2-3 drops of polish on a plastic sheet/paper plate. The quantity of polish should be enough to dip the straw in the polish. You can also dip the straw directly into the polish bottle (but that’s wastage!).

Once you have enough polish on your straw, aim at your nails and blow a quick puff through another free end of the straw. This will create a splatter on your nails. Keep repeating the process until you cover your nail with polish.

Things to keep in mind:
  • Let the base polish dry completely before starting the splatter.
  • You can use any drinking straw, but remember it should not be too large in diameter.
  • Peel the tape around your nails carefully.

I used Pure Ice superstar for the base. For the splatter I used OPI Affair in red square, Colorbar Pina colada, pink lady, plum grenadine, Turquoise, Sunset, Sally Hansen’s Laser and Sinful Colors Innocent.
