Abstract Nail Art Challenge - Combo


We are blazing through this challenge, only 2 more after this! Hard to believe how fast June is going by, right? Well, this challenge is to combine two of the previous days so I chose Ombre and the bottle splatter which I created for the household item. I still had my "leftovers" from that manicure and wanted to see what else I could do with it. Take a look!

 I did my "underwear" of 2 coats of Rescue Beauty Lounge's new Bella Donna. My middle nail is Ciate Stiletto mixed with thinner so it would spray out of the bottle - a Bumble and Bumble re-purposed ;) I added white to lighten and then a bunch of black (and more thinner) to change the shade.
 I got the consistency so right for the thumb, that's my favorite! If there is too much polish, it won't spray. If there is too much thinner there are too many large splotches. Once it's in the bottle though..it's super easy. One (maybe two) spray(s) and done :D


I can't wait to try other colors in the splatter...gotta get some more spray bottles :P

Look for Day 14 from this challenge on Wednesday and please check out what the other lovely ladies came up with!
