31 Day Challenge: Splatter

Friday, 11 January 2013

This was another first for me! It's something I've been meaning to do since I bought the W7 Top Ten Collection back in early December. I even mentioned it in the post when I bought them hahaha. At last I had the perfect opportunity and I love it!! Went with a white base for obvious reasons - just one coat; I then used the barrel of an old pen as my blowing instrument lol. Tried a straw but didn't get small enough splatters so thought I'd try the pen, with much better results. I also found it better to use the brush in the polish to paint the tip of the pen, rather than dipping the pen into the polish. Quick blow of each colour on each nail, and Voila! Instant, easy art! I really enjoyed doing this one :)
