Splatter nail art - 24-02-12, 08:09 PM

Good evening fellow geeks. Just surfing the net for nail art designs and stumbled across this site. It's all in french, so I apologise for that but I think it's all fairly descriptive.
It looks like fun. Although I'm not sure I'd get many requests. I'd definately do it on myself.
Have a look see what you think.

I LOVE this idea! Definately looks straight forward, just need to make sure all the hand & surrounding skin is covered.
Will definately be trying this on myself and my mum (ive said ill do her nails for free as long as i can practice what i want on her!)
thanks for sharing

Its a good result and a lovely effect but I would be reluctant to waste so much product.

Totally agree. Not something I'd be doing with me Shellac! :0/
Could try flicking acrylic paints in between the base and top coat of shellac. Remember at school you would use your thumb and rub it over an old tooth brush with paint on to create a spray.
Nothing like a experimenting. I don't do minx but I bet they must do a design like that. :0)

Think that's a great idea. Then you can use most of the splatters.
I'm not sure how much I like it though...maybe I don't like the colours lol x

I feel in love with the "True Love Splatter mani" from the thescholarlynail blog and this

from nailsxinfinity a while back.

Later I found this tutorial from the polishaholic. I gave it a try last year for the season premier of Dexter... things go quite messy but it was a beautiful effect!!!
