Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! A beautiful Autumn Tuesday at that.
Today I’m showing off yet another fun splatter look, this time inspired by a tutorial by @nailsdnt on Instagram. She used a stamper & cuticle oil to achieve a fun bubbly splatter look, & as soon as I saw her tutorial I knew I needed to give it a try! I just love a good splatter design, & this seemed like such an easy way to achieve it.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
- Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
- Matte Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat
- Color Club Twice Bitten
- L’Oreal Feeling Kilty
- Nailstuff.ca clear stamper
- Revlon Cuticle Oil
So obviously, first thing is first: I apologize for my weird cuticle area. Between an older top coat, & some weird matte top coat effect, it kind of gave me a messy finish. I’m definitely due for a new bottle of top coat.
Second, as you can see my nails did turn out pretty cool, although there are some differences between my splatter finish & the original design. While the original tutorial used a nail cuticle pen, I chose to use my bottle of Revlon cuticle oil, which I think lead to too much oil on the stamper. Her’s had more of a bubbly effect, while mine reminds me more a classic splatter.
But either way I love the end result. It’s so pretty! & the matte top coat just makes it look even more beautiful — I think the matte top coat just completes the look.
What do you think about this look? Are you enjoying these splatter nails I’ve been wearing lately? Let me know down in the comments below.
