I posted a swatch of OPI My Vampire is Buff, and had few requests to paint some red on them to make it look like blood on vampire teeth. I wasn't going to do it, however I've always wanted to try a Splatter Manicure. I pulled out some tape and thought it'd look more interesting if I just did the tips so I taped off the manicure and pulled out a dark red jelly polish and went to town. To do the splatter manicure you basically dip a straw into polish and blow. This is easier said then done. I practiced a few times and I swear my lungs were sick of me by the time I finished! I recommend covering up your area so you're not spraying polish all over the place. I used a standard regular straw and I slightly dipped it into the polish bottle I found that worked better than just dipping it into a pile of polish. Also practice spraying on a sheet of paper. Another thing that can help is make sure you have a coat or two of topcoat over your manicure before you spray, because if you mess up you can quick remove the paint and try again. The polish I used was Essie Lacy not Racy. I know these would be perfect for halloween and my timing is off in posting these but they are still fun regardless!
