The Real Jawbreaker Mani featuring Pretty & Polished

Howdy :)

This is my second time using Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker, and I still love the look of this polish! 

Today's manicure had some inspiration, the first being this awesome movie that came out in 1999. I was only nine-ish years old when this movie came out and it actually scared me a little! I've since watched it again in my teen years and loved it. Hahaha Hilarious movie.

The second inspiration was THIS POST on that features the awesome idea of splattering Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker to make it look like the actual Jawbreakers that I used to covet as a kid, and also that are featured in that awesome movie! Haha I loved the idea so much I thought I would try and recreate it!

First up, a picture of Jawbreaker on its own.. awesomesauce right?

I haven't splattered before so this was my first try, and look at the mess I made!!!!! For the most part I totally missed my nails and just got the polish ALL OVER my hands. I pretty much had to take a cloth full of acetone to my hands after this :\

For the splatters I used Orly Green Apple, Color Club Almost Famous, Gosh Blue Balloon, & China Glaze Poinsettia! The green and yellow stained my cuticles a little, in retrospect I should have used some vaseline or something on them beforehand.. but all in all I think it turned out pretty good!!!!! In my opinion I think it looks like the real jawbreakers :]

And there you have it!! One of my favourite polishes & my first try at splattering in one post! I like the look a lot and got some compliments on it too :)

*Once again I got the idea for this mani from this post on*
