Splatter Manicure - My First Attempt

Hello :)  I will be showing you my very first Splatter manicure using Deborah Lippmann Run The World (Girls) 5 pc Neon Matte mini Lacquer Set.  These are 0.27 fl. oz. 8 ml vs 0.50 fl. oz. 15 ml of their regular bottle.  These are very sheer and it takes about 3-4 coats alone to reach opacity.  It is better to use a white base to make the neon pop.  I usually don't wear neons but since I'm a hoarder, I had to get it lol !!

Here's a list of the shades according to Deborah Lippmann's website:

Hollaback Girl - outrageous orange
I Kissed a Girl - poppin' pink
It Girl - yellin' yellow
Nasty Girl - flaming fuchsia
Party Girl - sassy salmon

Started out with a coat of Wet n Wild French White, painted the nail polish on a straw and gave it a blow.  Topped off with a coat of Poshe topcoat.
I'm sort of complaining about the cleanup which took a while even with scotch tape around the nails.  However, I really did love the end result and will try again :)

This set is still available through DL's own website (link above) and other Department stores which carry DL.

What do you think?  Thank you for dropping by :)

Wowza!! I love me some neons, you should wear them more often they look great in you!!! I'm hopeless at the straw splatter mani, nearly passed out from all the blowing - that sounded dirty, but I promise you it wasn't!!
