Blood Spatter Nails
Halloween is my favorite holiday! Christmas? Bah hum bug! Easter? Suck and Egg. Thanksgiving? Boring! Halloween is just so fun and intriguing! I love it! In the spirit of Halloween, I did my nails in a blood spatter pattern. I googled some tutorials and it was super easy! I do my own nail tips myself so I don't have to deal with messy polish getting on my fingers. This is what I did...
I have white full cover nail tips in my collection which I rarely use. I picked 10 tips that fit each finger and placed them on a paper plate. I grabbed a straw and two colors of red polish, one being a deep red. I took the plate outside and set it on the grass so I could be as messy as I wanted. This was the fun part! I dipped the straw into the red polish and then pulled it out and held it upside down so the polish could coat the inside of the straw a little. Then I aimed it towards the nails and blew hard on the straw causing the polish to force out and spatter all over the nails. I repeated this until I felt the nails achieved the gory bloody spattered look. Then I added some accenting with the deep red polish to make it look like darker blood in spots. I left the nails to completely dry before applying them to my own nails.
I used PicMonkey to add a little bit of blood droplets and to make the crackled surface my hand was on just for effect. But the nails themselves were all done by little ol' me!
