Nailstorming #32 ~ Happy Holi!

Woot woot, I’m actually on time for once! For today’s sunny March day, the Nailstorming theme was Holi, the Indian holiday of colors. A real drama for me: I was in love with what I made last year, no stamping plate with an Indian looking pattern, I didn’t know what to do! So I went for a technique I wanted to try on a white base with neon colors; splatter (warning: Jackson Pollock Inside!)

This time I managed not to intoxicate myself, I had to say it. My base is two thin coats of my faithful Innisfree white, which has been surviving quite well for the record. I taped up all of my fingers to reduce cleaning time and made my splatter using neon polishes from Korea, Holika Holika. There are purple #4, pink #1 and blue #6. They actually have regular names too, but mind you, Korean isn’t the language from Asia I decided to try to master. The yellow from Kiko #279 as well as Color Club’s Vert Abyss joined the party. As for the negative space accent nail, I first created the first white triangle using tape, then taped my nail again to create the splatter only on the white, before finishing with free-handed white lines, using my brushes from Née Jolie. I seriously do not know how I was surviving before these came in my mail. Seriously!

I was heavily inspired by all the picture of negative space mani you can see on Instagram and especially Pshiiit last post this afternoon and I have to admit, I love this technique, I didn’t know I would love the result so much!

See you soon for new polishes adventures!

    Thank you! You should try, no need to be too good with polish, just need to blow in a straw and be willing to get polish a bit everywhere x)
