The air is getting colder and the nights are getting longer. Halloween is slowly coming upon us, so why not add a little bit of spookiness to your manicure? Our estheticians have come up with a step-by-step way for you to achieve the perfect blood drip nails at home.
To start off your blood drip nails, you will need:
- Base and Top coat
- Red nail polish (for the blood)
- Black nail polish (for the base colour)
- Dotting tool (Q-Tips can be used as a substitute)
- Small nail art brush (OPTIONAL)
- Nail polish remover
Step One: Start off with your nails prepped with a thin layer of base coat.
Step Two: Apply two coats of black nail polish. Let dry.
Step Three: Using red nail polish and a dotting tool (or q-tip), put three dots staggered no further than halfway down the nail.
Step Four: Using a small nail art brush or the brush from the red nail polish, connect the dots so they look like drips and fill in. Clean up any nail polish on the skin using nail polish remover. With the black nail polish, fix any spots of the blood drips that may not look right, or that have come out too thick.
Step Five: Apply a thin coat of top coat to the nails.
Now you are ready to show off those creepy nails at any halloween event you may be attending!
Don’t be afraid to book an appointment with one of our estheticians and ask for these bloody nails! They will be more than willing to spook up your manicure for halloween!
