Zoya Splatter Mani!

Hi everyone! I tried the splatter technique finally! I always look at how pretty splatter manis are but I was always a bit intimidated by them! They looked so messy and to be honest, they really are. I learned some things along the way that will make the process a bit earlier from now on. I'm really excited to try my hand at it again soon!

For today's splatter I used two Zoya colors, Kristen and Feifei. I'm seriously obsessed with how pretty this is! For a basic splatter mani you sill need your polishes, a straw (I cut mine in half) and either tape or Vaseline to protect around you nails. Protecting around my nails is where I really messed up! It slipped my mind and man did I regret it! I had to basically scrub FeiFei off my hands for about ten minutes. For my right hand I applied Vaseline all around my nails and that helped a bunch because I could just wipe everything right off. Manicurator has an awesome post on how to use a spray bottle instead of a straw so I think I might try that next time!

For this mani, I started with two coats of Zoya- Kristen which is a soft, greyish blue. It definitely leans more blue on me. I love this polish because it's opaque in two coats. For the splatter I used Zoya- Feifei which is a very hard color to describe. It's sort of a metallic blue base with flashes of green, gold, blue and pink sparkle. It's super gorgeous and flashy! I love the parts of the splatter where it's like a little blob of polish because you can really see the complexity of Feifei. I included an extra photo so you can see the all the crazy shimmer!

Isn't Feifei a beauty?!?! How do you think my first splatter mani turned out? I think it's pretty good!
