After a lovely weekend of camping on the California Coast at Costanoa KOA my nails were tore up (literally I tore a couple nails) so I decided to just chop them all off. Even though they’re nubbins right now that doesn’t mean they can’t be cute!I have to say there is something strangely comforting about wearing black and blood red nails. I think because it harkens back to my childhood days when my sister was goth and Elvira was on late night. Black nails were in 20 years ago and 20 years ago was a good time for me!
I used a fine paint brush and my homemade dotting tools to accomplish the designs and I think this design has a lot of versatility; you could just do the face and paint the rest of your nails black or red for a simpler version.
- Seche Vite Base Coat
- Sally Hansen Xtremewear Black Out for the black base
- Sally Hansen Xtremewear White On for the spider web stamping
- LA Colors Blood Red for the red pinky and blood drips
- Poshe Top Coat
oooooooo, I love your nail art! I have been getting back into painting my nails as of late, and I use Mineral Fusion brand nail polish. I don’t really like long nails since I work at the computer all day so my nails are never longer than the tips of my fingers, but I love pretty colors. 🙂 I am thinking about doing Halloween nails. Do you know where I can get neat-o nail stickers or stencils?
Thanks, I have fun with it 🙂 You could check out BornPrettyStore (but they may take longer than you like for shipping since Halloween is in a few weeks) or here on Amazon. I think the decals look better than the stickers in most cases. I’m thinking about getting some glow in the dark polish for the season as well (CVS has Fantasy Makers by Wet n Wild for a few bucks). Happy painting!
