Toothpick Splatter Nails

So I recently got this cute little set of four mini Essie nail polishes from their summer collection, and I just couldn't decide which color I wanted to wear. So I ended up using the toothpick technique to create a splatter-like pattern on my nails using all four of the colors. I really like how this turned out, but I think the pictures don't do the effect justice. Enjoy!

First I painted my nails with a sand color (LOVE this color- Revlon Colorstay in Bare Bones). I used a sand color to stick with the summer-beachy theme of the summer collection from Essie. But you can use whatever base you'd like.
From there I just put a dot of polish on a palette, took a toothpick, and swiped the color from the corner of my nail outwards. Then I just repeated the steps with each of the colors.
From bottom of the nail to top I used Bikini So Teeny, Mojito Madness, Fear or Desire, and Off the Shoulder. I topped it off with NYC Matte Me Crazy matte topcoat.
