Erica's Nails and More November 10 Day Nail Art Challenge - Day 1

Happy First Day of November!! :D Hard to believe that the year is almost over.. Thanksgiving is this month, Christmas is next month!

I decided that since I have a lot of free time on my hands right now, trying to look for a job, I would participate in a challenge :D So this is a challenge from Erica at Erica's Nails and More. It's the November 10 Day Nail Art Challenge. Below is what we're doing.

Day 1 is Rainbow.. I had a hard time coming up with something that had to do with rainbows. I wanted to do a water marble, but never having done one before and not having everything I needed, I decided to do something else. So I got on Pinterest and came up with splatter nails! (I forgot orange :( I was hoping the red and yellow would somehow make orange, but it didn't work).

And here is the mess afterwards!

And my new lightbox!! :D

  1. This is STUNNING! I need to do a splatter mani, but I feel like I would make a bigger mess than you had, lol!!

    1. Thank you! :) I swear, it took about two hours because the nail polish wouldn't form a film over the hole in the straw. But it was well worth it! :D

  2. Awesome! Now I want to try a splatter mani myself :-)

  3. Good job! I love the splatters! And I really need to make a lightbox too!

    1. It was super easy to make! :) Took about an hour or so to make it :D
