The style section of ebony.com has a brief feature on a nail artist who specializes in the splatter look.

Of course, the downside to DIY nail designs is that they can be difficult to execute, as they hardly ever turn out quite the way you envision. Sticking with styles that are easy to do often means that your nails won’t stand out and will be, well, boring.
