Splatter Nails

Below is my attempt at splatter nail design. It required me to tape each finger up with three pieces of tape (only to expose the nail).

You should first paint your nails with a basecoat color of your choice. Then choose 1-3 additional colors to “splatter” on. You will need straws to do this. I used straws from mcdonalds and they were pretty big. I suspect a thinner straw would have been easier.

Another thing I noticed is that holographic or metallic colors look the best with the splatter technique. Well, in my opinion.

I can’t wait to do this style again, but with different colors. What colors would you choose to do?
