Splattered Pink Wednesday

Hello Lacquer Luvers! Today I have a pretty neat splatter to share with you all. This one is a drug-store splatter. Well, at least for me it is. I picked up a couple of the Spoiled polishes a while ago when they were on sale for $0.99 at CVS. I know that Bettina isn't a drug-store brand for most of you but here in Miami you can find it in some Walgreens and also a pharmacy called Navarro.

I began with a base of Essie Grow Faster followed by two coats of Tip Your Waitress. This is a neon pink polish, although in my pics it doesn't show how bright it really is. I LOVE this color! It's gorgeous and doesn't dry incredibly matte like most neons. The formula for this baby is perfection. I've heard horror stories about the brushes on these polishes. Mine are all fine. I actually quite like how wide they are, too. It makes application a breeze for me.

Once Tip Your Waitress dried (which was really fast, by the way) I began to splatter. I use small red straws from Dunkin Donuts for this but I'm sure just about any straw will do. To achieve this look, simply drop a few drops of polish onto paper and dip the end of the straw into it. On the undipped end of the straw blow short quick puffs of air which will blow the polish out and on to your nail. The colors I used were: Spoiled Kickin' The Habit (purple) & Bettina's Matte (white) & Aqua (blue).

I use the same straw during this entire manicure. I just snip the end off with a pair of scissors after each color I use. To finish this mani, I used one coat of Color Club's top coat.

I believe this is the third splatter mani I have showed you guys. I hope you aren't getting tired of them because I really do love doing it. They are so much fun and very easy to do. I love working with bright colors and this season I plan on doing a few more of these. As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!



  1. Pretty! Your splatter turned out great!

  2. The more I see splatter mani's, the more I NEED to try them. Don't stop doing them, they're one of my favourites!! :)

    I adore the colour combination you used. Sooo good.

  3. I love this babe!!! The colors are great together. I could never get tired of your splatter manis. They will always be unique. That's what I love about these types of manicures. Now I'm in the mood to try another one. I've only done one so far.

  4. i noticed that you always use essie grow faster as your base coat. does it work for you and is that why your nails are so long and pretty? i've just started using it again.

    1. I was using OPI's Nail Envy but that isn't three-free and I'm 7 months along with my baby girl so I had to find a three-free base coat. Grow Faster really does the trick for me. I don't get staining and it really does help my nails grow faster =)

  5. The result is really pretty! :)

  6. Gorgeous as always! Love it! I'm so keen to try one of these now!

  7. WOW!! I never thought I will get that excited about splatter, but you actually make me get over excited about it!!! G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!

  8. this is really cool! i've been wanting to try this one with my little cousins cause i'm sure they'd get a kick out of the process (:
