spooky nails.

Okay, so I was thinking I'd start a new "Halloween" inspired series of posts for nail art. Why? Because I love Halloween, and I love super cute nails.


So the first of my spooky nail tutorial's are these bloody nails. Perfect for if you are going to dress up as Dracula.

Here's what you need.

Red nail polish
Base coat (or white)
Top coat
A bobby pin or toothpick
Some scrap piece of paper

Here's what you have to do.

1. Apply base coat - Let it completely dry.

2. Apply the red nail polish to the tips of the nails - It can be messy, it doesn't matter.

4. Take the red nail polish and drip about a dime size amount onto the scrap piece of paper.
5. Take the bobby pin and create drops of blood by having a larger bottom the the drop and drawing upwards to the top to the nail.
6. Add random "Drops" of blood to the bottom in a tear shape.
7. Apply top coat after it is completely dry.

And there you have it! Super spooky nails (Up at the top)! Yay! :)
