Splatter paint is one of the simple designs. With this design specifically, I wanted to achieve the same design without creating the mess of actually splattering paint onto my nail. What I love the most about this and similar designs it’s the inconsistency. It does not take someone with much skill. You are, in a sense, making a controlled mess. There’s no uniformity that needs to be followed.
Keep reading to see how I achieved this design!
For this design, I used a stamper, Twinkled T Glamour Mat, tape, and the following nail polish:
White: Sally Hansen “White On”
Pearl white: Color Club “Winter White”
Nude: OPI “Act Your Beige!”
And of course my current favorite quick dry top coat “Marvel Liquid Macro Top Coat" by SuperChic Lacquer.
First, I began with the base color of OPI “Act Your Beige!”. This polish is very sheer and needs a few coats to be opaque. It won’t get fully opaque but three coats gets you to the maximum opacity this polish will allow. I applied three coats and as you can see, the natural nail is still visible underneath. I like this polish as a base color for designs like French manicures and any involving negative space. It provides a more uniform color that still appears natural.
Next, I took my stamper and painted a very thin line across it. I tried to do as thin as I could using the normal nail polish brush. Next I stamped the stamper on my Glamour Mat to spread out the polish. I allowed the polish to dry a little by letting it sit for a few seconds. At the point, the polish is so thin from being spread out on the stamper that it should be dry in a few seconds. I took the tape and picked up parts of the polish on the stamper to create the edges. When, the polish was as I desired, I stamped the polish onto my nail. I first did this step with Sally Hansen “White On” then repeated with Color Club “Winter White”.
Finally,I added a layer of quick dry top coat the finish it off.
