Halloween Manicure: Blood Drip Nail Art
by Sammy Tremlin
With Halloween just around the corner, there’s an unavoidable feeling of gore in the air. I’ve created some gruesome nail art that’s a perfect accompaniment to any costume or for those of us who prefer to keep things a bit more low key!
Have you ever wondered how to make it look like you’re bleeding from your cuticles? Well, probably not, but I bet you’re curious now! Read on to find out how it’s done.
Before you start, make sure you have everything you need:
- A fresh-colored polish
- Blood red nail polish
- A dotting tool
- A nail art brush
- Top coat
- Nail polish remover
Follow these step-by-step directions to create this dripping blood nail design:
1.Paint on a nail polish that matches your skin tone. I’ve used Barry M Vanilla.
2.Paint a few thin lines of varying lengths from your cuticle down your nail in the blood red polish.
3.Using a dotting tool, add one dot to the end of each line.
4.Pick up your nail art brush and draw a curved line from the dot to your cuticle.
5.Fill in the area near your cuticles by joining up the lines.
6.To finish, add your favorite top coat and clean up any mess that’s left on your cuticles using polish remover and a small nail brush.
Will you be completing your Halloween costume with some gory nail art this year?
