The New Black splatter


Hi loves! How are you today? Hope you are having a great week.

Today I have something to show you I was very proud of. My first (succesful) splatter manicure! I was so happy with the outcome and received quite some compliments on these nails.

I used polishes from 2 sets provided by The New Black. The sets are "Shibuya" and "Noble Spirits" from the Digital Underground collection. From the first I used the cream basecolor, and from the second the orange and blue color. Sadly the individual polishes don't have names nor numbers, so keeping the set together is the best way to be able to tell which polish it actually is.

I started with 3 coats of the cream basecolor. For the color it is it actually applied quite well, yes it is a bit streaky but nothing that can't be fixed with topcoat. It wasn't patchy so that's nice. If you have a steady hand and take your time 2 coats probably will do just fine.

For the splatter I started with the blue, because it is the darkest color. I taped off my fingers as much as possible to avoid huge cleanup and that worked good!

Tell me, do you like this splatter? And do you have any experience with The New Black polishes?
