Hello again! Get me, two days on the trot blogging! Don’t get too used to it, I’m sure it won’t last! Anyway, today is the second prompt in the new 26 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge, and it is negative space Halloween. One of the down sides of wearing nail polish 24/7 is that you can end up with stained nails, even when you use basecoat religiously. My nails are pretty stained, so I usually avoid negative space designs. However, today I’ve buffed out as much stain as I could without causing damage, and had a go.
What I used:
- Nails Inc South Molton Street (sheer pink creme)
- Color Alike Red Dragon (red stamping polish)
This has to be one of the simplest nail art I’ve ever done!
I started with a coat of South Molton Street, which is a very sheer pink. I hoped it would even out my nail colour a bit, and also act as a basecoat. My normal base has quite a red tint to it, so it wouldn’t really work for negative space.
Next, I used the red to dab the tips of my nails, and create the drips. I just used the bottle brush to do this, I was happy with the drips being quite thick and blobby, as I think it helped make it look more like real blood.
And that’s it! No topcoat, as I didn’t want the ‘blood’ to be smoothed out, I liked the 3D effect.
So there’s my really simple blood drip nails for Halloween. If you’re out celebrating this weekend, I hope you have a fantastic time!
