GUEST POST: Lacey from My Boyfriend Hates Makeup: Neon Splatter Mani

Pin It Hello, lovely readers of Lace & Lacquers!

Your regularly scheduled Lacey is moving so she asked for a couple of guest posters.  I am your substitute Lacey for the day, LOL.  I wanted to come up with something bright and fun to match the usual tone on this site, so today I have a neon splatter/graffiti/whatever you want to call it mani for you!

First, I painted my nails a pale base color. This is Friends Forever, Right? from the China Glaze Giver collection. It may look white but it is the palest of the pale pinks.  This is three thin coats and topcoat.

After it dried, I tagged my boyfriend in for some lung power.  He used a dunkins straw for the splatter.  I used a rainbow of neons, including China Glaze, Sinful Colors and Nire's Desire, an indie company.  Clearly, this look requires some cleanup...

But, after you spend forever with an elf concealer brush and some acetone, you get an awesome finished look!

I wanted to end with this last pic, which is the tinfoil/back drop that was used for the mani.  I think it looks really fun and I actually used it as the background for my phone for a while.
