31 Day Challenge, Part 2!: Day 9, Rainbow Nails


For today's challenge of rainbow nails, I decided to try a technique I've been wanting to do: splatter nails! I really really really (really!) love these. They are such a fun look and so easy to do.


Next time I do them though, I'll try a smaller straw like a coffee stirrer or something instead of a regular drinking straw because that resulted in some of the large blobs you see. I'll also put tape around my nails because it makes a big mess. See?


I used a bunch of different colors of this mani. I started with a base of Sally Hansen Whirlwind White. Then I used Zoya Sooki (red), OPI Chop-Sticking to My Story (orange), OPI The "It" Color (yellow), Essie Mojito Madness (green), Sinful Colors Why Not? (blue), and Sinful Colors Dream On (purple).

Below are some close-ups of each nail.

    1. This was actually my first try! But if you can't get the hang of it, there's always the splatter stamp

    1. Thanks! I think using tape will help with the mess (much like it helps when you water marble).
