Today's manicure was inspired by one I saw on Chit Chat Nails, which is easily my favorite nail blog. Marta has an amazing eye for color and composition.
In Marta's blog post she linked to this YouTube video tutorial on the splatter painting technique. I watched the tutorial with wonder and a bit of horror as I saw nail polish flying about - I was wondering how one could possibly clean up such a horrific mess. However, not deterred I immediately sent my fiance to the store in search of straws. When he returned I began blowing and spitting my lungs out, and here are the results of my first attempt...
This look is a little on the wild side but anyone who knows me knows I don't mind being wild from time to time!
I started out with one coat of Zoya Trixie. Once that had completely dried I went to town splattering Zoya Reece, Adina, and Raven onto my nails and everything else in the vicinity.
And here's a look at my left hand. Very different, but just as randomly awesome. I definitely want to continue working with this technique and improving my skills. It's a lot of fun and you never know exactly what you're going to end up with, which is an awesome exercise for a perfectionist like myself.
I hope everyone's weekend is off to a good start. Toodles!
