Splatter manicure!

Today’s mani is a messy one (in a good way)!

I’ve done a splatter manicure before, and I really liked the random effect it gives your nails, the hardest art was choosing the colours! With so many polishes now, I don’t know what to chose!

In the end I decided that I’d show you a couple of my new polishes and do something a bit different!

The first colour That I wanted to share with you is this gorgeous teal polish by City Colour creatively named ‘Dark Green’. This polish has a metallic blue/green finish and 2 coats applied brilliantly and gave an opaque finish. You all  know by now how much I LOVE my Rimmel Matte Finish Top Coat so I added a coat of that, and it looks gorgeous!

Once my nails were painted in this colour I needed to pick another two complementary colours, so I came up with Loreal Paris Nail Varnish in ‘Valiant’ and Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours Quickdry in ‘Coty Paris’

I Love the colour combination, and I finished the manicure with a coat of Matte Finish, Because I’m obsessed!

HOWEVER..

The matte polish dulled the sparkle of the silver ‘Valiant’ and didn’t look as impressive, so I used my Rimmel 5-in-1 top coat to add some shine!

Which look do you guys prefer, shiny or matte?

POLISH UPDATE

You may have seen my post ‘I Painted Alice’s Nails!’ As a thank you for doing her manicure, she surprised me with a new polish! I had been complaining that the only colour I didn’t have was yellow and she remembered! She bought me Rimmel I Love Lasting Finish in ‘Sunshine’ perfect to brighten up these winter days! Thanks Alice! 🙂

  1. That looks great! Was it messy getting the splats on? I’ve tried it, but can’t seem to get this lovely outcome.

  2. Wow, I love the colors you chose! I actually like the matte version of this mani best, but they are both great!
