1. start with painting on a layer of white as a base. 2. then, take a straw and cut it in half. 3. using one of the halves, dip the tip of it into the nail polish bottle (whichever color you decide to splatter first) 4. hold the straw about 4 inches away from your white nail, then make a quick blow into the straw. 5. repeat these steps to splatter more than one color on the same nail. have fun!
