Hi lovelies! Happy Monday! Another week here, a short one for us Canadians as friday is Canada Day and a Holiday!
Last night was the True Blood season 4 Premiere, which sadly I missed because I don't get HBO, but I am all caught up now (I dl'd it after it aired). I LOVE that show..especially after I read all the books, and have now read them multiple times over! I wanted to do a True Blood themed manicure but I didn't get around to it (and Katy beat me to it). I'll have to think up something cool for the finale!
So, rambling aside, my manicure I want to show you today is SO cool. I am kind of obsessed. The wonderful Jen of The Polish Aholic showed us a "how-to" splatter manicure the other day and I KNEW I had to try it. Katy attempted it with less success for her True Blood-inspired manicure yesterday, but thankfully me & my neon love had a bit more success. Neons+splatter, what is not to love.
So I used 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Whirlwind White and then 6 polishes, China Glaze Pool Party, China Glaze Shocking Pink, China Glaze Sun Worshipper, China Glaze In The Lime Light, Nina Ultra Pro Celtic Sun and Orly Blue Collar. I used so many neons because well, I love them and I had a hard time taking out Japanese Koi & Flip Flop Fantasy..so I stuck with 6 instead of 8!
Sorry there are so many pictures, but I am obsessed you guys, seriously!
Also the colours aren't 100% accurate because they are all neons and REFUSED to photograph properly...sorry :(
My right hand, just to show you how different it looks on each finger!
Sorry about the dry cuticles.. this was before I moisturized & went outside to take pictures!
I love this style of manicure BUT the one thing I am going to say is..I am messy..and I got nail polish every where. On my desk, on the bottles..on my hands (way up there on my hands, past the tape), even on my legs (I have no idea how). So, maybe I need to learn to be tidier..but regardless this is my new go-to nail art. It's so easy! I can't wait to try it with other colour combinations!
Thanks for reading! <3 Let me know what you think in the comments loves!
