Halloween is only a week away. So while you probably have your costume in the works right now, you may need an idea for some Halloween nail art. I drew inspiration from my past schooling for this design. I actually have a degree in Forensic Science and love true crime stories.
This crime scene nail art design is very easy to do, especially the blood splatter nails. You just need a few polishes and a bobby pin.
To start off, paint all of your nails with a white polish. You can also apply a liquid latex/glue around your cuticles to minimize the clean up later on. Allow that to dry before moving onto the blood splatter.
For the blood splatter nails, you need a red polish and a bobby pin. Taking the polish, dab some in the curved end of the bobby pin. It should stay in there and not drip out (unless you put too much in there). Quickly move it over to your nails (have some paper towel underneath as well) and blow into the bobby pin. The closer the bobby pin is to your nail, the larger the splatter. The further away, the finer the spray. Clean up around your nail after you finish all the nails.
For the crime scene tape, take a yellow polish and create a diagonal line across the nail. Then taking a small nail art brush and some black polish, write out the word CRIME. Also, create a black boarder using the brush and polish.
Allow everything to dry for 5-10 minutes and then apply a top coat.
Polishes Used: Sinful Colors Snow Me White, OPI Amore at the Grand Canal, CND Creative Play Black & Forth, and Avon Sunshine
