Confession time: I am terrible at painting my nails. My usual technique for manicures includes slapping paint on my nails, letting them dry, then taking a shower to remove all the polish I got on my skin. Basically, I’m the target user for spray paint nails.
That being said, I love having fun, colorful nails, so I keep trying new manicure designs. The latest trend in the nail art world is splatter manis, which reminded me of one of my favorite artists, My Friend Court, who taught our acrylic painting class. Even for a nail art novice like myself, I found these nails were really easy to achieve. Plus, just by changing the colors, you can make them work for a bridal shower, an outdoor tea party or even a rainbow party.
As with all nail art, the key is being patient and waiting for the polish to dry completely before doing anything else. I have ruined countless manicures by thinking the polish was dry and then messing them up by washing my hands. So, get your Netflix queue ready, and let’s start splatter painting.
