Since the point of challenges is to well, challenge, I thought I would try a new technique today: splatter painting! Wheeeee! I stole some straws from the Au Bon Pain in the building next to my lab, and got to work. There is a bit of a learning curve to this one!
I started with a grey base, splattered on black, and then white. Unfortunately, for most of my nails the white (which at this point is 2/3 empty and getting rather thick) came out in globs. I fixed this endless white mass by adding some black/white matte glitter…that of course you can only see the black part of. I’m so tricky!
This is a FUN technique. I’m glad I looked it up a bit first so I knew to lay down some saran wrap, wrap my nails in tape, and take off my rings! Otherwise…messy. Very messy. It STILL got all over my hands! But decidedly fun 🙂
So what do you think, worth it? I think I need to try with more colors (and thinner polish) next time and see what work of art (or fail) resolves itself.
