Doing a traditional straw splatter can not only be super messy, but can waste a lot of polish. Why not paint it on?I know, this looks totally different from a straw splatter. This is a little more cartoonish. I’ve actually done a mani very similar to this before. I must have liked it to almost duplicate it.
My base polish is one I just picked up; China Glaze Moonlight. It’s pretty sheer and needed a good three coats to get decent opacity. I love the color though. It’s a very muted soft white. Really, it is the color of the moon. The other colors are acrylics.
This week’s theme is polka dots or stripes. Or why not both? It looks very Easter egg-ish, yeah? I’ve got spring on the brain. And the fact that all the store are already putting out Easter candy isn’t helping.
I used Wet ‘n Wild I Need a Refresh-mint and Milani Pink Hottie along with white acrylic.

How cute is this? Heart cherries.This makes me feel happy and springy. Winter seems like it’s lasting forever! I want spring! That’s all.
I used Wet ‘n Wild I Need a Refresh-Mint and Sally Hansen White Out along with a few acrylics.
Awe… cute. I love this delicate design.I first did this Jonqal design for a Twinsie Tuesday theme back in December. I loved it! It’s such a simple design to do, but has such a dramatic impact. The black and white color scheme back in December was a very bold look, while the pink and white today is a much softer look.
I used OPI Pink Friday and white acrylic paint for the jonqal design. For my love birds I used OPI Do You Lilac It, Vant To Bite My Neck, The “It” Color and Pink Friday, Color Club Edie, Milani Fresh Teal, Sally Hansen White On and Black Out, Jordana Orangesicle and red acrylic.
I topped this off with two coats of HK Girl top coat. I have a crazy idea for tomorrow’s mani. We’ll see if I actually do it. It promises to be fantastic. Do you have any fun Valentine’s manis planned?
I’m having fun coming up with Valentine’s manis. I didn’t do many lovey dovey designs last year and I think I’m making up for it.This is the first time I’ve tried lips. I need to practice a bit more I think. I like them anyway.
I used China Glaze Liquid Leather, Sally Hansen White On and Milani Fresh Teal along with white and red acrylics.
