Halloween Nail Art Tutorial

Halloween Nail Art Tutorial

Last week’s nail art tutorial seemed to go down well so I thought I would do another one. This week’s is a tutorial for dripping blood nails. These are quick, easy and look brilliant.

You will need: base coat; white nail varnish; red nail varnish; and top coat.

Step one: Apply base coat and two coats of white polish.

Step two: Decide where you want your drips to go and put drops of red nail varnish to mark the spots.

Step three: Join up the dots with red polish and add some further drips.

Step four: Add some lines of white polish to make the blood look wet. Put the lines wherever the light would catch it. Top coat away and you are done! Easy peasy!

What do you think of these gory nails? Will you try this manicure?

Leopard Print Nail Art Tutorial

Leopard Print Nail Art Tutorial

After someone on the internet pinched a photo of my nail art and did their own tutorial for it, I thought I would do some of my own! *shakes fist at stupid internet photo stealers*

Leopard print is my go-to nail art when I have no time or am feeling totally uninspired. These photos are pretty self-explanatory but here are a few steps so you can recreate this at home:

  • Paint your basecoat and base colour onto your nails
  • Using your contrasting colour (in my example I used white) paint small blobs in various sizes
  • Put small dots in another contrasting colour (in my example, black) at various points around the blobs (I used a dotting tool, which are a few pounds on Amazon/Ebay or HERE – you can also use the tip of a stretched out hair pin if you want to go really DIY!)
  • Now join up some of the dots, and add lines and dots in the spaces if you want to
  • Add top coat. I used Seche Vite (of course!)

And you’re done! Let me know what other tutorials you would like to see from me?

(Also please ignore the blurriness of that photo, I don’t know what happened there…!)
