Splatter Paint Nails!

HII GUYS! I'm so excited about this mani! I LOVED LOVED LOVED THEM. Though I don't think I will ever do them again. Hahaha. Splatter paint nails are crazy messy. Though if I wasn't in a slight hurry I could have taped them or something at least, but I didn't feel like it/was too excited to start them.

I used the straw method (dipping a straw in polish and blowing) and my boyfriend helped me. He told me he wanted to do my nails which would be funny, but I needed them done for the cookout we were having the next day. So I told him he actually could help with these! We both did a few colors and I think they came out awesome! Definitely worth the hour clean-up, but yea, I probably won't do them again any time soon.

Oh also, I took a few photos of my right hand. I think some of the nails on that hand came out better so I wanted to show them. What do you think?

I used:
  • Zoya: Purity
  • OPI: Suzi's Hungary Again!
  • Essie: In The Cab-Ana
  • Essie: Playdate
  • Illamasqua: Rare
  • Sally Hansen: Sun Kissed
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat

As a bonus, here is the paper I had my hands over, hahaha.


  1. ADORE THEM! Absolutely in love with the colours you used here! Hahahha!! So sweet of your BF to help you in completing this nail art! :D These are so worth the clean up time! ;D

    Great job!!!

    1. Thanks so much! Yea he was like "Wow, this is fun! Now I see why you do this all the time..." Like I always paint my nails with straws, hahaha.

  2. Love them. I need to do these again sometime. I found the trick is to use Vaseline around your nails--i.e. apply before you start and then wipe clean after your top coat. Seriously, make clean up a breeze.

  3. These are amazing. Will probably give these a go on an accent nail or two to lessen the effort and mess.
