Black Splatter Nail Art

Hi guys!! How are you doing? It’s Sunday and I feel so tired 🙁 For a few nights now our daughters seem to be sleeping badly and the result of course was that we were all sleeping badly. I swear I could fall asleep sitting in the chair behind a desk. I hope these kind of nights end soon and everything gets back to normal. But enough about my sleeping deprivation, let’s get to the mani.

I’ve been wanting to do a splatter mani for quite some time now, I just didn’t have the courage to face the potential mess this nail art can cause. So I delayed it as much as I could. But now I finally decided to do it no matter what. And the mess wasn’t that bad, actually there was barely any mess to be honest.

I started with the white canvas, Essie – Blanc. I did two coats and one coat of Essie – Good To Go. After it was dry I did diagonal dry brushing with three different colours, yellow O.P.I – I Just Can’t Cope-Acabana, coral Essie – Sunday Funday and red Essie – Really Red.

And then the real work began. Firstly I protected my skin around the nails with Cuticle Deffender from Kaleidoscope. Then I took a straw, I think it was a bit narrower than the usual ones. I did a few tries before I did it on my nails and I wasn’t successful. So I started shortening the straw and in the end it was about 5 cm (2 in) long and I think it was perfect. I put the straw in to the black polish, Essie – Licorice, twisted it a bit to pick up the polish (but not too much) and then I did a fast blow, like I was trying to say a P letter through a straw. I hope I was clear enough in explaining the whole process. If I wasn’t just ask me what you want to know in the comments bellow.

And in the en I sealed the whole thing with Essie – Gel Setter.

    So pretty! <3 Kako mi je pa tole zdaj všeč, ampak sigurno se en bi spravila delat, si predstavljam kakšna umazanija bi iz tega nastala 😀 A potem samo slamico namočiš v lak in je to dovolj, se dovolj oprime gor? Ful zanimivo res. Pa še take odlične odtenke si skombinirala :D.

    Hvala Petra ♥ Jest sem tudi mislila kakšno bom imela, pa sploh ni bilo nič posebno napacano, res. Ja, drugače pa slamico toliko namočiš, da se na njej naredi taka opnica (kot pri milnih mehurčkih). Jest sem še tko mal povrtela slamico, da je šlo tudi nekaj laka v njo. Samo preveč ga spet ne sme biti, ker čene je preveč pol tega. Moraš malo potrenirati. Jaz sem začela s celo slamico in potem sem rezala, ko se je lak začel sušiti in pri 5 cm sem ravno ugotovila kako je treba :). Ker prej mi tudi ni šlo najboljš.
