Abstract Nail Art Challenge Day 3: Splatter!

Today I've got the 3rd day in the Abstract Nail Art Challenge for all of you! The requirement for today was Splatter. Now I looooovee me some splatter nails, but clean up can be a bissssh. Especially when I decided to use the entire Color Club Take the Wing collection for this mani!

I started off with 2 coats of Sally Hansen's White On. Then I grabbed the whole wonderful glassflecky collection and a straw and went to work. I had this idea where I wanted to use all 6 colours but in a sort of gradient across my nails.

Here are the polishes I used to splatter on each nail,
Thumb: Daisy Does It (yellow), Sparkle and Soar (orange)
Index: Sparkle and Soar, Wing Fling (pink)
Middle: Wing Fling, Fly With Me (green)
Ring: Fly With Me, Metamorphosis (turquoise)
Pinky: Metamorphosis, Sky High (blue)


I totally loved the look of the glassfleck polishes splattered over white!! It was so cool looking! But as you can see there were a ton of glassflecks left on my skin that were ridiculously hard to clean off, so please forgive me for that :)

Once I was all done I topped with NYC top coat and was left staring at my lovely nails. I didn't really like my middle nail but the rest of them I thought were pretty cool! 


So I have a bit of a funny story to share about my NYC top coat. When Sammy from The Nailasaurus was raving about it I went out and got myself a bottle, or so I thought. I didn't realize that it was the In a Minute clear polish not just the regular NYC top coat. I was sooo frustrated with it and didn't realize why I wasn't having great results. When Emily posted about her love affair with it and posted a picture of the bottle I felt so silly!! I finally found a few bottles and snatched them up and seriously it is the best top coat ever!

I think my index nail is my favourite splatter in this bunch! What do you all think? 


Do you like my idea of a gradient through the collection splattered across my nails? Think the idea came to fruition? Are you a fan of the splatter look? 


Remember to stop by The LacquerologistBeautyGnome and Manicurator to see what these gorgeous ladies have come up with on this splatterday!
