Digit-al Dozen - New & Improved Week - Day 3

Hiya guys! I'm more than a little behind at this point, but hey I'm not giving up. I'll be posting another mani late night and hopefully the last look tomorrow afternoon. Fingers crossed my body agrees with what my mind wants to do lol. So today I am sharing Day 3 of New & Improved Week for the Digital Dozen... splatter nails! I have been dying to these for years, but just never seemed to get around to it. Now that I've done it once I feel like it's all I'm going to want to do. Though next time I'll be more prepared and hopefully not make as much of a mess. I ended up walking away from this with polish everywhere, including my hair! So worth!

Word of warning, if you're doing these with anyone else in the house you might want to tell them before hand. My husband had no idea and after hearing the 'weirdest' sounds decided to check up on me. He walked in while I was in the middle of blowing a lung out through a polish soaked straw. Yeah, he officially thinks I'm nuts now haha.

Now here's a break down of everything else I used to create this mani:

  • Base: Sally Hansen Xtreme White On
  • Polishes used: Essie Flowerista and Garden Variety 
  • Straw(s)
  • Liquid Latex from Ellagee
  • Top Coat: Seche Vite Topcoat

I really have no idea why I never made myself try this technique before, it's so much fun to do! I even made a video, though it is my first time doing this kind of mani so mistakes were made and you can clearly see where haha.  But the best thing about this mani is the fact that mistakes are easily fixable, it's like a no-fail possible mani if ever.

And as always don't forget to check out the amazing manicures from the other ladies in the Digital Dozen. Everyone is seriously kicking so much butt! It's kind of hard to believe these are our first attempts at new techniques!


  1. Gorgeous colour combo! They look sooo good!!

  4. Gah, these are so cool!! You did such a great job with this!

  5. I'm sure glad you finally tried it, because this looks gorgeous!

  6. Great mani! And I laughed out loud when you mentioned your husband. Mine walked in the other night as I was in the laundry room with all the lights off except my camera light recording a slow motion video of a sparkly microglitter. I'll never live it down!
