Nail-aween Challenge Day 3: Bloody Nails Attempt #2

I really couldn't resist doing another bloody manicure for Day 3 of the Nail-aween challenge. I have been wanting to try a splatter manicure for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to do it. I was about the clean up the mess, but what is the likelihood of true blood splatter just falling neatly on the finger nails? Therefore, you get to see all the whole bloody mess...

I used the same polishes this time around as for my first bloody manicure attempt. The base of the manicure is OPI My Very Fist Knockwurst. The "blood" is Zoya Sam, thinned out with some polish thinner for easier splattering. Thinning it out, however, made is lighter than I would have liked. Maybe next time I will try for a deeper red to splatter with so when it is thinned out the color will hopefully be just right. For splattering I used a disposable plastic pipette...

Even thought I was reluctant to clean up, there is no way I'd be able to pull that look off at work (unless maybe on the 31st itself), so I had to clean up. Here is what it looks like...

I'd love to know what you think of this! Let me know in the comments below :)

  1. Oh this is all shades of red-gorry-AWESOME!
    YOU DID such a great job!!!!!!!!!!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE (in a thank-goodness-no-one-was-harmed-in-the-course-of-making-these) love! ;) (no one did get hurt... did they ?) ;)

  2. This is fantastic, found this from Marta's tweet!

  3. I appreciate seeing the whole bloody mess ;)

  4. I love it!! Totally awesome before the clean-up, but yeah, I can see how it might raise an eyebrow or two at work. It looks fantastic all tidied up too. ;o)

  5. This looks great! I wish you would have kept the messy nails though...for the costume itself that would have been EPIC!!! I'm gonna try this.

  6. This one is even better than the previous one :D

  7. Looks great! I've been wanting to try this too.

  8. This one looks freakishly real !
    Especially before the clean-up.
    Perfect for Haloween !

  9. I love it! It's too bad you had to clean it up! You should definitely do it again on Halloween! Gross and awesome!

  10. I love blood splatter manis! I just finished day two of this challenge so mine is coming up next. Hopefully it looks this good.

  11. Dang! I love this blood-spatter pattern manicure. Dexter would love it, too. I must do it.

  12. Thank you ladies! I'm so glad that you like it and I didn't freak too many of you out :)

    I definitely want to try something similar for Halloween when I don't have to do the clean up :D

    And welcome those of you that found me through Marta's tweet! She is the sweetest :)

  13. These look really great! I still can't do a real splatter to save my life!

  14. Thank you! Thrilled that the bloody effect came across well. I used a cheap plastic pipette for the splatter, straws seem so messy! :)

  15. Glad that you like the gruesome!! Thank you for your comments :)
