Day 27: Inspired by Artwork
So, today I had to do something inspired by artwork. I've seen some cool splatter paint manis floating around and I decided to go for it. And who is better known for splatter paint than Jackson Pollock?
I started with two coats of OPI I Vant to be A-Lone Star.
So basically what you do is you take a straw, and you dip it into the polish bottle so it gets a film on the end, like a bubble wand when you're blowing bubbles. Then you blow into the other end of the straw and loosely aim for your nails. You will definitely want something behind your nails because it is just as messy as it sounds.
See? This is a giant mess of Ulta Blue Streak
Then I did the same thing with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Co-Bolt Blue (agh the hyphennns! O Sally Hansen, why dost thou torture me so?) and cleaned up the best I could but it took a loooot of acetone.
Out in the sun! Sorry for the awkward chips, this was after wearing it for a day.
My station after I was done. I guess it actually doesn't look too bad, most of the mess ends up on your hands!
So I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I wasn't sure if the whole use-the-straw-like-it's-a-blow-dart thing would work, but it did (for the most part). Yes, this does waste a whole lot of polish, lol. If you think water marbling is wasteful you will DEFINITELY not want to try this. But the way I see it, I have so much polish that I really don't need to worry about using it up too fast, lol.
Are you excited that the 31-day thing is almost over? It was quite the undertaking! I'm getting a bit worn out but it's been interesting. Have you been enjoying it?
