Well..this mani was both a fail and kind of a win at the same time. I wanted to try out the splatter technique that everyone is doing but I tried a lot of different ways and it just wasn't giving me the effect that I wanted so I decided to go about it a little differently. First I polished my nails white and top coated. Then I thinned some polish until it was very liquid and dipped a large paint brush into it. After it was nice and loaded I held it over my nails and just lightly tapped the base of the paint brush to cause little splatter drops to fall onto my nails. I layered them and then added a little more white (using the same technique) to create these rosy marbles on my nails. Honestly, I kind of love it even though it wasn't the intended outcome. From a distance some of them look like hearts and roses and the whole thing has a very marbled, luxe feel to it. I considered adding glitter or some kind of sparkly enhancement but decided ultimately to leave it as is.
It's so soft and pretty! :) Don't forget to check out what the other girls of the Digit-al Dozen came up with for today's Love and Heartbreak challenge!
