splatter

I actually spent quite a long time trying to figure out how to do these nails, i didn’t want to risk losing the colour pigment in the nail polish when attempting to water them down an the next question was how to water them down without destroying them. Well, i figured it all out and it was way simpler than i though it would be.

The colours i used for this look are:

‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Bright Orange’ by MaxFactor, ‘Juicy’ by 17, ‘Shade 50’ by 2true, ‘Shade 48’ by 2true and ‘Strawberry Fizz’ by Rimmel.

I started this off white about 3 coats of white so all of the colours i put on would stand out as much as they could. I wanted them to seem really bright.

So i took each colour and added a bit of nail polish remover, and mixed well, then taking a small bush i liberally dosed it up with all the nail varnish and tapped it again my finger above the nail and got the splatter to land on the nail. When you start doing this the nail looks really empty and the urge tis to put more on there. But you have to remember how many colours you have to use and think that if you try to fill in a lot of the white space with the first colour then when you’ve got to your fourth colour there’s not going to be much room left and it won’t be easy to see them all.

So take each of the colours and repeat until you’ve done them all. At this point if you think the nails look too bare then go back over them with the colours and add more splatter.

Any group of colours can be used, be brave go bright or whatever you like.

I hope you have fun recreating this look!
