I -tried- to copy you! ......


This is supposed to be one of those cool splatter manicures..... I have tried this twice and cant seem to get it right.  The base is 3 thin coats of Wet n Wild White, with Wet n Wild Eggplant Frost and Wet n Wild Frosted Fuschia. Maybe the polish I choose dries to fast or is not viscous or runny enough to get the splattered look...... HERE is a great tutororial over at The Polishaholic.

So = this is more of a 'blobby' manicure hahahahaaaa.  ~ I tried. Its still cool but not what I was going for.


3 thin coats of WnW White over Nailene artificial nails.....



Below is an Explosion mani copy from Nailside, i stuck with only 1 colour as I know trying to make a 2 coloured explosion mani with crisp lines would be difficult. The day I tried this it was rediculously humid out as well. Next time I try this, I hope its as good as hers and I will use a corrosponding glitter for the next Explosion Mani like THIS.


I started with a base of Billie Royal, I applied thin triangles of clear tape like in the tutorial then used 2 coats of Sally Hansen Chrome in Moonstone. I added a thin coat of TC only to the feature nail becuase I ended up applying a coat of Pure Ice Rio over this and the rest of my nails (   now that i am looking at the photos - I think tracing the outline with glitter stripe polish would have been nicer..........)

Splatter manicures are difficult to get the hang of but once you do them a couple times they start to look awesome!!

Did you ever do an art project in school using colored tissue paper, cutting it or tearing it into pieces,wetting it and putting it on a flat sheet of paper? It looks stain glass like your mani. I like the effect. :)

I can't do splatter mani's either...it just never works for me. I think it looks like stained glass too and it's beautiful!

The splatter-mani reminds me or a floral type fabric. I think it looks great! I will have to try this one day,

At least you are trying something new-I don't see them as a fail at all! I actually love your blob mani!

I cant do splatter mani's either! They always create such a mess - not just on the table but everywhere else!

I'm loving the blob manicure. It turned out nice even though you didn't get the desired effect. Nice choice of colors.
