Inspired by Pollock Splatter Nail Art - Digit-al Dozen Art Week with OPI Skyfall

Good morning :)
Art week continues...and what art week would be complete without the iconic Jackson Pollock inspired splatter mani? I didn't base mine off an individual painting of his, just the concept. And I knew I wanted to showcase polishes from OPI Skyfall Collection. For more information and to shop: visit www.opi.com, follow OPI on Twitter @OPI_PRODUCTS and become a Facebook fan!
 I used OPI Moonraker for my "canvas" base. It's the only one of the bunch in this collection with a slightly problematic application. I initially used OPI Nail Envy as my base coat, but when I went to apply Moonraker..it literally slipped around on the nail like an oil patch!! I tried a bit more then decided to go another route. NO BASECOAT. This polish applied much better that way. I have on 2 coats. It needs a gentle steady application as it shows brush strokes. I do really like the color, it's an interesting blueish silver.
 I splattered with: Skyfall, Casino Royale, The World is not Enough, You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, On Her Majestys Secret Service using a small drink box straw, I find that easier than the large straw.



 I really like all these colors together and I like the final look..though in retrospect..I wish I splattered even more :)

What do you think?? Stay tuned for tomorrow's Art Installment and see what the other ladies have created for today!

xo, Victoria

  2. I love the colors! The red sort of looks pooled up and bunched together - which gives it an awesome textured look!

  3. Perfect for Halloween, these look like blood splattered nails. I guess I am not much into the whole spattered look. But this was like ewww, sort of gruesome.

    1. Hi Kellie, I named 6 colors, and I promise you they are all on there. I enlarged the close-up pic, so maybe it will help them be more visible.
