My patriotic attempt at the splatter mani. I painted a white base coat down first. Then I got a puddle of blue polish, dipped a straw in it, and then blew on the other end and let the polish splatter on my nails. Then did the same thing with the red polish.

You can find a great tutorial on this mani over at THE POLISHAHOLIC's blog.

I love this! When I was little I always did this on a piece of paper. Never thought of doing it on my nails!
