Walking In a Winter Splatterland .....

Winter Splatter Mani

Hi Goddesses

This is a short post because I have a lot to do today!  I am prepped up to Day 11 of the Christmas Challenge and as I am GLORIOUSLY off work today, I want to get further ahead J  (and yes, I was a swotty pants at school).

I toyed with doing a winter water marble and I think I still will, but as I needed something quick and easy the other night, I thought I would do a winter splatter instead.

Whilst I am really pleased with the photos and the colour combination, this doesn’t look on the nail how it looked in my head, and so it’s a bit of a fail for me.  I wanted icy colours and a bit of sparkle so I used 2 coats of DS Coronation (silver holo) and then splatter with SH White On, CG Sea Spray and OPI Its Totally Fort Worth It.

Each of these colours on its own is cold and wintry – together ?  meh, I just didn’t get the variation I wanted.  I’m especially sad about ITFWI – in the bottle this is a pale grey with wonderful shimmer.  I look at the nail and even *I* can’t see where it landed, and I know I blowed it on!

Not a total fail, but not the success I wanted either.

Enjoy xx J


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
