Paint Splatter Nail Art

I was feeling a little too productive last week so I was able to film 3 nail art tutorials.

It was Saturday so I went to the mall to have my facial treatment at Flawless. But the doctor who takes care of my skin was on leave so I canceled it and just went a little window shopping then went straight home. I usually go home late when I come from the mall but this day I looked at the clock and it was only 7pm so I thought I could still film a video for you guys.

I bought some 2 way nail art pens that day and those pens come with little pins that you could use when the pen's hole get stuck. Out of nowhere, I thought of creating a design using that pin. Here's what I came up with...

Paint splatters! I've seen this design around because I am also subscribed to my favorite nail gurus YouTube channels. They either used nail art thinner, hair dryer, a drinking straw or a nail dotter. I used a pin!

You don't need to use the exact pin that I have. Sewing needle, safety pin and any other pins work fine, too.

For this design, I painted the base color in white so that the paint splatters would just pop. But, you may also use black if you prefer.

People on YouTube get excited when they see I use Caronia and ask if I am a Filipino. Yes, I am a Filipino and I intently use our brands so that people from other countries would get to know them, too. Caronia nail polishes are very pigmented and come in wide array of fun colors. And they are also really cheap so hoarding won't hurt your pocket.

Also, the colors aren't limited to what I used here. You may use your imagination and mix all the colors that you could ever think of. It's really all up to you! :)

Anyway, here's the video on how to achieve the messy nail splatter design.

It's really fun, quick and easy! I did both my hands in less than 30 minutes.

The design is really meant to look messy so don't worry about trying to create perfect lines and shapes.

Thank you for reading and I hope you like this nail art.

Watch more videos and tutorials on my YouTube channel.

Have a great day!
