We are all snowed in here in NY, what better excuse than to sit down and get to work on my Money Smart Nail Art contest entry sponsored by MoneySupermarket.com. I decided to show off the spray bottle splatter technique that I discovered back in June, 2012. Check out my post from June here. I then tried it out again to see if I could get consistent results and found I liked the second attempt, black and white splatter even better.
So here, I'm showing you a tutorial of how I got it done and another go at it.
THE FINAL LOOK:
Mix up a combination of your chosen nail color and some nail polish thinner into a cleaned out household spray bottle. I used a bottle that previously had a sample hair product in it.
I covered my hand in vaseline to aid in clean up. I used the precision Q-tip to help carefully cover skin surrounding the nail.
SPRAY SPRAY SPRAY until it looks how you want it. Different bottles and differing amounts of polish versus thinner will get you different results. Just experiment :)
Clean up and top coat and you are done :)
OPI My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours is a cream polish, so appropriately named. This color is hot. I don't know if it's a red orange or an orange red, but it's hot.
What do you think? Would you try this to get a splatter look without the straw?
