Floam Day

Hello everyone :)
Last week I signed up to Polish days which is run by Hannah over at Polly Polish. Our first post was named Floam day and your mani had to use Floam somehow. So I started thinking about a different way to use Floam that I hadn't seen yet. This is what I came up with...
I did my first splatter mani! :) I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I used 4 coats of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu from the New York City Ballet collection as the base, I then splattered using a straw and OPI Fly & Did It On 'Em from the Nicki Minaj collection. I used these two colours as they are similar to the two colours of glitter used in Floam. I then used the same method to splatter Floam on top of the previous colours.
I really love how this turned out. it's so bright and fun to look at! I'm glad that I decided to use colours that coordinated with Floam nicely :) I will definitely be doing a few splatter mani's in the future with different colour combinations :P
