Beauty: 5 Steps to a DIY Splatter Print Manicure

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe posted a few photos of splatter print nails for inspiration on our Facebook page and you guys loved them, so we’ve decided to show you just how easy it is to create the look.


Here are the most simple tips we have found.

Before you get started you’ll need:

  • A clear nail polish
  • A matte white nail polish
  • At least two coloured nail polishes
  • Some paper towels
  • A straw
  • Some cotton buds.
  • Nail polish remover.

Pour a generous amount of each polish onto a paper towel and coat the end of a straw with the polish as shown. Blow through the clean end of the straw directly onto your nail, alternating between each polish you have chosen. This will create a splatter effect across your nails, as shown above.
