Nails Did: Lavender Loving With A Bit Of DIY Splatter

Yes, I know there are two different designs on my nails... Let me explain.

So I went to the nail salon to get my nails done. I picked a great color and while watching him paint, I decided I wanted a design. Now usually I don't get a design at the salon because, although I love how my nail tech. does my nails, he SUCKS at designs. 

I don't know what possessed me to ask him to do a design on my fingers -___-

He started with a straight line of mint green going down the nail... okay, that looked promising... But by the end of his brush strokes, I ended up with something that reminisced the British flag on PCP... NOT GOOD.

I left it on for a few days, you know, trying to be a good person and give it a shot. Then one night I decided the madness had to stop! I saw a tutorial by Getnailed on YouTube about splatter nails and decided to try it. I went to Dunkin Dounuts, stole borrowed some coffee straws (don't steal children!) and came home to create a masterpiece on my nails.

Here is a close-up of my efforts:

I like this A LOT better... it looks like a painting of some sort. Hmmm, am I the next Van Gogh?


What do you think?



  1. lol @ your nail tech who can't do nail art! You did a great job on the splatter paint. I've been wanting to try the stilletto nail but i'm afraid it will affect my typing at work. do you have problems when you type?

  2. Ooohhh nice...I really like the graffiti inspired nail art. HOT!

  3. The splatter look is super cute! I want to try it!

    p.s. thanks for the comments on my blog!! And YES, TOMS really are that comfy! Now i can only speak for the one pair that I have but I am obsessed with how great they are. My feet never hurt or feel tired after a long day. :)
