Here is my 4th of July manicure!
This was a lot more difficult than I expected.. but it turned out more or less how I wanted. I used the splatter technique that I've seen a lot of other bloggers doing so I thought why not? Thanks to the burn ban and fireworks being cancelled this would be as close as I was gonna get!
This was my first try, using a regular old drinking straw and a plastic paint palette plate. Doing one hand at a time I put a couple of coats of China Glaze White on White. For the splaterring I used China Glaze China Rouge and OPI Yoga-Ta Get This Blue. I figured this would be messy... like marbling.. so I put tape on my finger around my nail to keep clean up to a minimum then I put 4 or 5 drops of of China Rouge in one of the wells on the palette. I dipped the straw into the polish and, not directly over my nail but at a bit of an angle, blew a short puff of air into the straw. After getting the effect I wanted over each finger I repeated with the other color. Sealed it all with a coat of Seche Vite.
Here are a few more pictures:
I've had this on my nails the past 2 days and luckily has not chipped at all. I'm pretty happy with this manicure over all, I hope to try other color combinations soon. Thanks for visiting! :D
