Splatter Mani

Good Morning All!  Yesterday I did a Splatter Mani for  the challenge in Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge on FB.  It actually was supposed to be a "spring" splatter.  I just wasn't "feeling" a pastel  at that time :)  So , I went with my favorite...black.  I looked at tutorials, and read blogs to see how to do this....well, it was a disaster..at first.  I had such a mess. :(   Then I thought "it needs to be thinner", so I got out my acrylic paints, watered it down some, and it was perfect.  I did not use a straw as others had, I used something called an air/water syringe tip from work...sssshhhh, don't tell!!!  But , it worked sooo good!

I used WnW Ebony Hates Chris as my base. And then I used my acrylics and blew like crazy...here is the final product....


I told my son that it looked more like Halloween colors, than spring.  He said it looks like a party nail!! I still think I will remember this for October   !!!!
Thank you all for stopping by, have a Sensational Sunday!!

  6. This is awesome!!! I love that you used black for the base instead of white, and I could totally see this as a Halloween mani with mostly orange splatters... that would be cool!
