Holo Splatter Nail Art
I did some holo splatter nail art for a nail art challenge prompt a few weeks ago. I realized that while I love the challenge prompts for mani ideas, I can't ever manage to post on the day they are due. So you guys get to see them now. Check below for more pics and a tutorial.
I started with a base of Orly Goth, a black creme with silver shimmer. Then I used the splatter nail art technique to blow blobs of holo polish onto my nails. It was extremely messy and I immediately regretted it. It did look super pretty though. The holos are most of the Cupcake Polish American Beauty collection.
After some thought, I went back and recorded the shortest tutorial in the world. I was having so many technical issues that all you get to see is my blowing the colors on. I also stopped recording after the 3rd color cause....you get the point. It's hard to record this type of tutorial with my current equipment so I didn't feel the need to go out of my way and re-invent the wheel. Sloppy Swatches has a great tutorial she did for her Blood Splatter Nails so feel free to check it out. For shiggles, the tutorial is below, I used Sally Hansen Black Out as the base for the recreation.
I actually won the Cupcakes in a giveaway and I purchased Orly Goth myself.
