#TheLacquerRing: Splatter

It's time for the #TheLacquerRing's art prompt of the month. You may remember we did Cobalt earlier this month. Amanda from Mae's Beauty has picks this month and her art pick was "splatter." This was my first time trying splatter and I think it's safe to say that I hate it and Amanda is a jerk for picking it. ;-)
 
Seriously though, it looks so easy. In reality it's really hard and makes a HUGE mess. I think there may be nail polish on my ceiling now.
 
My base for this mess is the lovely Floss Gloss Wet. This color is so freaking pretty. It's described as an "electric turquoise creme" and I don't think I can top that. 
 



For my splatter I chose L'Oreal's Masked Affair. My beautiful friend Frosso sent this to me cause she loves me. There is a lot of hype surrounding this polish and let me say it's worth hunting down. It's a holographic grey polish (with light lavender leanings) that is simply stunning.





Be sure to check out all the splatter mani's the TLR ladies came up with below.


Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  1. I want this polish so hard. I haven't really hunted for it yet, but maybe I will this weekend. I should probably just forget about it and deal with the 100 other polishes I will have accumulated by the end of the month.

    I'm with you that splatter manis suck, but you pulled it off nicely.

  2. I love both polishes...that green is just gorgeous! I have looked for Masked Affair and haven't had any luck. =(

    Oh and btw, I found a great HOW TO video for the splatter mani. It is by 'nail artist to the stars' Tom Bachik...he explains it in a very short but effective video...hope it helps you, that is if you ever do it again LOL. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P46JQFimxOM

    1. I love Tom Bachik. I wish I had seen this before I did it. I watched another tutorial that made it look super easy...wrong!
