Halloween Nail Tutorial: Dripping Blood

I'm really not one for nail art. It's too fiddly, takes too long to dry and I'm such a darn perfectionist that most of the time it fails. I'm the girl who keeps trying to perfect it until my nails are a gloopy mess! However, I really wanted to try out something for Halloween and believe me this is so easy, even I can do it!

 What you will need:
A base coat/ top coat- I chose Barry M Base Coat Topcoat & Nail Hardener
A white nail polish- I chose Barry M Matt White
A red nail polish- I chose NYC Expert Last Nail Polish in Fine Red Wine
A bobby pin/ nail art brush/ small make up brush

First I whacked on the base coat (not pictured because who wants to look at that!)

Next I painted on two coats of the white polish

Here comes the "tricky" bit (read: fool proof). I glooped (technical term there!) on the red polish quite thickly and then as you can see I've pulled the bobby pin apart, to use the thinner part to simply drag the polish down the nail! That's it!

Couldn't resist adding a spooky filter ;)
The great thing about this nail design is that it doesn't have to be perfect. Blood doesn't drip evenly!

I loved how this turned out! Have you done any festive nails this year?


  1. This looks really good, I've seen other people do this with different colours on a white nail so it looks like dripping paint. pretty cool as well!

    1. Thanks! It's so easy but I think it's really effective. That sounds cool! A neon pink or orange would look great against the white xx
