Next time I want to do a splatter mani, I just need to remind myself not to. This took over an hour, due entirely to my inability to get the polish out of the darn straw (is there a better way? Ugh), and then clean-up. Yes, I taped my nails. Yes, I had saran wrap down. Doesn’t matter…the whole bathroom sink was a mess! And my other hand. I should have worn a glove. Ugh.
That being said, the end result isn’t terrible. I just know how much effort went into what is honestly a mediocre manicure. I need a better way to do this!

On the plus side, I got to test my newest matte top coat, Big Matte by Sally Hansen. Although it doesn’t mattify as much as my trusted (and defunct) Matt-ly In Love by Hard Candy, it does do a better job than the NYC polish I bought two weeks ago. The polish still appears to have some depth, but since I can’t find anything better (Revlon looks the same when I tested it in the store, and essie was nowhere to be found), I think it will have to do! It does take quite a bit longer to dry (10 minutes as opposed to 2).
