  1. I did a similar version for Halloween: i sloppily painted the very tips black, went over it with a gelly polish in blood red once, and didn’t just paint the nail, but the surrounding skin as well, to give it a look like the whole fingers were dipped in blood. Just like they dug guts. I applied a third coat of red on the outer half of the nails to further deepen the colour – let it dry, done. It’s a very effective, creepy and realistic, dramatic look, easy to achieve and easy to remove as well. Plus it lasts all night, or festival, if you want.

  2. I do something similar during Halloween time – – I do a bright orange base and black ‘drips’ like that – – I always get a compliment!! Yay for taking it to the next level!! Might have to do this style this year!

  3. LOVE IT!!! My fave part is the lighter color underneath and the darker on top. It looks like black was added to the small pools at the ends of the drips. FAB!

  4. i tried to have this done by a manicurist a couple weeks back… they ended up looking more like flames, but still pretty cool! next time i’m going to try on my own and see if i have better results.
