Hello there lovely readers! So October is here at last in all its glory goodness which means one thing in my book...Halloween manicures! Amongst other stuff sure but yeah...its all about the Halloween nail funness to be had...until Xmas arrives that is! You can check out the Halloween manis I did last year HERE.
I thought for my first Halloween themed mani I'd go down the dripping blood route which is always fun...with a slight twist using an image I remember seeing on Instagram yonks ago using the Chanel symbol. So here we have some Chanel-esque dripping blood nails...
So my loves it turns out that free handing two backwards C's is actually pretty darn hard didn't ya know? So hopefully you can at least figure out that it was the Chanel symbol I was attempting here haha!
First up let me mention this absolutely scrummy nude base colour for my mani, Nina Ultro Pro in Rum & Reggae. I found this brand in Sally’s recently, on sale for just a few squids & there’s nothing I love more than trying a new brand of polish! And this does not disappoint, smooth formula, great brush & perfect application in two coats in the loveliest creamy beige I think it may be my new favourite nude!
I then grabbed a nail art brush & used OPI's I Sing In Color from the LE Gwen Stefani range. This also happens to be another bargain sale buy from Sally's. Whenever I pass one I always pop in to visit the sale section to hunt down any prettys! I Sing In Color is a stunning vampy red black brown gloss, perfect for blood tones...
After (rather abysmally) drawing my Chanel C's I then just used a dotting tool & some more of the OPI & added on 3 drips to each nails plus a few extra blood droplets.
Finish with a coat of topcoat for shine. I definitely need to practice my free handing C's but overall I'm still pretty chuffed! Can't wait to roll out some more Halloween manis! Will you be going all ghoulish on your nails? Thanks for reading!
Lotsa love to ya!
