Girly Camo Splatter Mani -- Week 22 of the Year of Polish Challenge

The splatter mani is an elusive beast.  At one end you have a giant hot mess and the other you have oblong polka dots.  The perfect splatter mani finds a balance between the two and it takes practice.

I wouldn't say my Girly Camo Splatter mani is perfect but its the best I've done so far:) 



I started with Orly Bonder Base Coat on each nail.  I then painted my nails with two coats of Olympia.  Then using coffee stir straws that I've cut in half I dipped one end of the stir straw into Military Green and blew through the straw, repeating on each finger.  I then followed with Boom Boom, Nude It!, and Loving Lavender.  After a tiny bit of drying time I applied a top coat and the Girly Camo Splatter Mani is done!
