First Splatter Mani

I have been wanting to try this design for some time now but other ideas got in the way.  I think I need to start keeping an idea book.  I probably come up with 5-10 ideas a day but when it comes to actually doing one I forget what designs I thought of!  Guess that means I'm getting old. :(

First, 2 coats of China Glaze White on White. I am trying out different whites to see which one I really like.  So far Marshmallow is still my favorite white.  WoW is streaky but you wouldn't notice with a design on top.

First color, butter LONDON Cheeky Chops.  I forgot to take a picture of the straw I used.  It's not a coffee straw but it's not much bigger.  It looks like a mini straw.  It also took me awhile to get the air pressure right, as you can tell.

Second color, Essie Turquoise & Caicos.

Third color, butter LONDON Macbeth.

Fourth color, butter LONDON Minger.  It looks really bright in the pictures but its actually more like a burnt orange.

Fifth color, China Glaze Electric Beat.

Next, I topped it off with 1 coat of NL.  I have been kind of obsessed with NL lately, if you couldn't tell.

Lastly, 2 coats of NYC.  The following pictures are taken in different types of lighting to try and get an accurate picture of the colors.
