The first NAIL prompt for October is splatter-painting! Splatter is one of my favorite techniques. It is fun (who doesn’t like getting messy?), abstract, and RA-friendly!
In honor of October, I used Halloween colors. I really like the final effect but I do not like this orange. It is too yellow and dulls the white base underneath. It also stains the skin like mad. I should have used my trusty Wham! Pow! but I am running low so I used this Zoya polish instead. Oh well, I learned my lesson for next time.
I hope you like it!
I started with 2 coats of the Julie G White Orchid and Serum No. 5 Happy Special Day as my base.
I splattered with Zoya Gwin and Milani Black Swift.
I sealed the detailing with Seche Vite before adding a generous coat of INM Northern Lights. I noticed however long I wait the Milani polish always smears which is a bummer because I love this polish otherwise.
Hi, my name is Monica and I have RA.
Loving this, looks really good. I keep thinking of Jackson Pollock for some reason 🙂
Ooh! I see it! He really likes his yellow-toned colors…and has a lot of orange, black pieces. Very cool, I didn’t see it before! Thanks 🙂
