Manicure Monday: Retro Splattered Nail Art

Manicure Monday: Retro Splatter Nail Art
Today, we are going to bring it back to a nail art design that reminds us of the retro times. This splattered nail art design is reminiscent of that show in the 90’s – Art Attack. Remember that? The background of his logo possesses the splatter design we are going for. While this design may look complicated, it’s actually very easy to achieve in a few simple steps. We’ve broken it down for you, so have fun with it!

Choose your first color and apply a solid coat of it on the nail. It’s better to use the lighter color first so you don’t have a hard time layering another color on top later. We are using Essie’s Spin The Bottle.

Apply another color to the bottom half.

Dot 3 dots just above the line you’ve created.
