DIY bloody nails

BOO!

Happy Halloween everyone!  One of the best days of the year.  I didn't really have the drive to create an awesome costume this year, for reasons that I'll discuss when I'm ready, but I certainly needed at least a LITTLE gory bloody Halloween spirit. The one day of the year I can be as nasty, oozy, zombi-fied as I want!

I've been seeing this bloody nails DIY floating around for a while, and it was the perfect easy Halloween "not costume".  Perfect.

To create this look at home, all you need is some toothpicks and some red nail polish.  Polish remover and paper towels on hand are sort of a must also.  

Begin by dipping a toothpick into your nail polish bottle, until it forms a bit of a drip bubble on the end.  Not a huge one, just a little one.  Create 2-3 strokes with the toothpick, starting in the middle of your nail and painting outward, to form a "drip."  Do this for all of your nails. 

  Grab the brush cap and paint a line around the top of your nails.  No need to be perfect here, but if you mess up, you can always dip a toothpick into the polish remover and clean it up a bit.

  Ta-da!  You've got creepy grody nails.  So lovely.

  It's been a really rough couple of weeks friends.  Cheers to some Halloween fun and as much candy as I want!

Have a happy and safe Halloween,

Trish
