Nail Art How To: Bloody French Tips

Nail Art How To: Bloody French Tips

10.21.13

By niwp_admin
  • INTRODUCTION

    Normally, we’d be disgusted (and also kind of sad) at the sight of a bloody nail. But in the spirit of Halloween, we welcome wicked accessories of all sorts, including this gory crimson-laced mani. It’s an easy DIY design, too, so read on to see this full tutorial by Polish Sickness.

    SLIDE 1 OF 6
  • TOOLS

    Supplies Needed:

    Julep Jennifer
    10 Professional Nail Lacquer Holiday in Spain
    Dotting tool
    Polish remover
    Eyeliner brush
    Seche Vite Top Coat

    SLIDE 2 OF 6
  • STEP 1

    Paint nails with two coats of Julep Jennifer.

    SLIDE 3 OF 6
  • STEP 2

    After the base is completely dry, paint a thick coat of Holiday in Spain on the very tip of each nail.

    SLIDE 4 OF 6
  • STEP 3

    Using a dotting tool, lightly drag the red polish down the nail in random lengths and widths. The idea is to have the polish look like blood drips. Because you need a thick coat of red at the tips for dragging, make sure to leave some extra drying time.

    SLIDE 5 OF 6
  • STEP 4

    Once the red is completely dry, apply two coats of top coat. Use an eyeliner brush with polish remover to clean up around the cuticle.
