Easter Splatter Nails With Pysanka

Good early morning, dear readers! :D

If your wondering why I have been posting so much in the last day or so, it is because I have done several Easter-y manicures that I want to show you before Easter is over.  :D

Here is a splatter manicure that I did yesterday.  The base colour is a franken I made, the light blue is another franken, the yellow is Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine, the pink is Essence Ultimate Pink, and the purple is Essence Break Through.  I used some Sephora by O.P.I matte top coat.  Please excuse the dry skin, my hands have been through a lot lately.

And now for just the nails:

If you aren't already familiar with how this type of manicure is done, you paint a base colour then use a straw to make the effect.  You dip it in the colour you want to spray, then blow through the straw to splatter the polish.  It is really fun!! :D  I find that the bigger splats are made if you blow the straw closer to the nail, and the smaller splats are from further away.  Super fun!

Have a wonderful day! :D



  1. I LOVE THIS, and I just did my first ever splatter mani tonight, too! I love it, but cleanup was nottt a fun time. :P I love the colors you chose!

  2. @ Courtney Eldridge: OOOh yeah, the clean-up sucked big time!! >.<! I heard a tip about using petroleum jelly or lip balm on your skin first so you can wipe the polish off easier, but my lip balm didn't work. I don't know if I didn't use enough, so maybe next time I'll go with the petroleum jelly!! Thank you so much for the compliment! :D

  3. Wow, I love this! So cool! I'm thinking of doing either something like this, or else a water marble, for the Coldplay concert I'm going to on the 21st!

  4. So cute and so much fun.

    I Love the end result!

  5. I'm going to have to try splatter one of these days...

    Your pysanka is really beautiful! And I love the mani!
