Did I mention I love how this came out!?
If you haven't yet tried a splatter mani, I seriously suggest you give it a go! It's super easy and the results are amazing!
This is far from being a splatter tutorial, but here are a few tips I have learned along the way to make it easier:
- Thinner straws seem to work way better for controlling where the paint goes and also to avoid huge messy splotches. I use cocktail straws, but juice box straws or hollow coffee stirrers would work similarly.
- If you get a lot of polish on your fingers, try dabbing some vaseline/petroleum jelly on the skin around you cuticle area. Then if you make a mess, it will just wipe right off. A Q-Tip is good for spreading the vaseline.
- If your design doesn't come out exactly as you envisioned, don't worry! That's the beauty of splatter, it's so random that even "mistakes" wind up being workable!
- Mix and match with different colors and the outcomes will sometimes really surprise you!
Good luck with your splatter endeavors!
