I got inspired by Look What the Bats Dragged In's manicure she did for the "Horror Movies" challenge. On some of her nails she had a blood splatter base and I've always wanted to try that! Said and done, now I've tried it and it was so fun!! Yes, there is some cleaning up to do, but if you're thorough when you tape your nails for protection it's not that bad actually.
I love that the pattern, created as you blow in a straw with polish in it, is totally unpredictable! It can turn out like anything! However, I found that a hard short blow created the most beautiful patterns.
The base in my manicure is "Jet Stream" from a Danish brand called By K. Totally vegan, cruelty free and also 5-free! A review of this polish will come shortly! The red is China Glaze "Winter Berry". A very blood look-a-like polish ;)
I'm very pleased with my first splatter manicure! I'll definitely try it again!
How do you like this blood splatter manicure?
Have you tried this technique?
