Manicure: Sparkling Splatters

I'm back with another manicure post! I'm beginning to think I'm going a little over board with the splattering ;x I actually find it fun though, even if it is entirely messy. I do think that I'm doing something wrong, the polish doesn't always want to splatter. Takes a few goes, and a lot of frustration as well.

Ruby Wing Groupie and Electric Firefly
 Either way, I love the final result, although I was iffy on the ring finger. Most wanted to know if the manicure glowed in the dark because of the neons (have I mentioned that I'm obsessed with them STILL?).

I did use a white polish as a base under Electric Firefly, which makes the color show up so much easier than layering. 

The splattering is easy (although frustrating!), I just used a couple of straws and kept replenishing Groupie on the tin foil due to it's ability to try fairly quick. Yes, I used tin foil this time instead of styrofoam!

For the ring finger, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, then just winged it with the tape. I went from the corner of the free edge nail, down to just above the cuticle on both sides of the nail, then painted Groupie over Electric Firefly. Two coats would have made this better, but it was late. Gah! I felt that it was still missing something, so I added a rhinestone to the point of Groupie. Then sealed everything with a top coat. This is the first time in a few years that I actually used rhinestones!

And that's that!
