halloween: dripping blood nails

 NAIL DOTTING TOOL - EBAY | BARRY M NUDE NAIL PAINT | CHANEL ROUGE NOIR LE VERNIS

With Halloween well on it's way I'm going to try and squeeze in as many scary make up and nail art idea posts as I can, starting with this post on dripping blood nails. It's a super easy look to create as the messier looking the drips are the more realistic it looks, there's really no skill needed whatsoever. Just paint on a nude coloured base and use a brownish red shade for the blood effect, start by creating rounded lines from the tip of your nail with the brush and then use a nail dotting tool to add extra detail.
