It’s that time of year againnnnn! Halloween is next week, guys (are you as mind blown as me?), so this obviously meant a classic blood drip mani was in order. I love Halloween because (a) there’s candy (b) there’s more candy (c) awesome nails and (d) adorable little babies in adorable baby costumes (meep!). Bloody nails are just a teeny, tiny bit disgusting and totally my favorite around this time of year (except wait until you see Friday’s post –they’re kinda my fav, too). For these gory fingertips, I drew the drips in OPI’s Big Apple Red over my natural nails with no base color. I added super shiny topcoat and then decided to try them out matte, so you see them both. I definitely prefer the glossy ones, and I find this design looks best with no base color. I tried it out with a base here but it’s much more convincing without one… and easier to do! Which do you prefer –with/without a base, matte or shiny topcoat?
