Nail Polish Blogger Challenge - Day 5

Hi guys! Just getting this post in before midnight, haha. I had a lazy day and only just did my mani for today.
But again, I made it super cute, so it was worth the wait!

Before we get started - the Bundle Monster Facebook nail art contest ends soon!
Click here to check out my entry and give me a vote if you like my design. You guys helped me win before and I know you can do it again! I totally appreciate it!

Now for the nails!
I've been waiting to do a splatter mani for a while now, but never took the time to do it until tonight.
I thought an all-pink splatter might be nice!

So here we go.

Pink overload! In a good way!

I'm so happy with how this turned out.

The base is, as you know if you've been following this challenge, Color Club Peppermint Twist.
I splattered using several different polishes:
China Glaze - Strawberry Fields
Nicole by OPI - You're An Angel
China Glaze - Light As Air
Wet N Wild - Tickled Pink
Barry M - Limited Edition Pink

To acheive the splattered look, I dipped a coffee stir stick into a drop of polish and quickly blew it over my nails. There are several tutorials for this on youtube - check it out!
It's super easy. No nail art skills required!

I'm so happy with the way this turned out and I'm not looking forward to changing this manicure tomorrow to keep up with the challenge! That's the problem with these challenges... Haha!

One of my lovely followers, Line, who I've been interacting with on my Facebook page suggested I do a pink manicure for breast cancer awareness this month.
I've been doing pink all week as you know - but today I decided to add a ribbon to really seal the deal!

I added the ribbon with China Glaze Urban-Night. I hope this breast cancer awareness mani hit the spot, Line!
Line has recently started her own blog too (it's contagious,) but it's in French so many of you may not understand. But you can all look at pictures! Check it out here.

And again, check out the other manis from the girls in the challenge this week!
