Splatter Mani for Run or Dye

Last Saturday, my friends and I participated in the Run or Dye 5K. This race raises money for local charities and the one near us was benefiting the American Cancer Society. To make it a family fun event, you are sprayed with powered dye while you run. I did a similar race last year, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do this with my friends. 

This time around I wanted to do nails special for the 5K. I decided on a splatter mani. I had seen how to's on them in the past, and to be honest, the mess just turned me off from even trying it. But in the end, I thought this would be the perfect mani for the Run or Dye. I used the Polishaholic's Splatter Mani Tutorial, which you can see here

I really liked how it came out! It was perfect for the event. 

I used Tempest for my base and then splattered Love at First Sight, Feelin' Froggy, Scandalous, Wack Slacks and Falling Hard. I probably could have cleaned up a little more, but it was late Friday night and I was exhausted. Laziness won!

All clean before the event and ready to go!  Don't ask me what's up with this pose. HA!

Did someone grab my ass? Dewey? Did you just grab my ass? (Points for you if you get this reference!)

Apparently my ass is grab worthy! 

 After, and boy was that green difficult to get off!

It was a fun day and I can't wait for the next one. Check out Run or Dye's webpage for info on all the dates and locations. This is especially fun to do with friends and family. 


  1. LOVE how your nails turned out! I so want to do a splatter manicure now :D

  2. how fun! i always loved how cool it looked to have all that color like they do for Holi in India! And your nails fit perfectly!
