Blood Drip Nails

So I'd been eyeing up this mani for awhile and finally decided to try it this weekend since its nearly Halloween. Also can't really say where I got the inspiration as everyone and their dog has done this design.

I started with a base coat of OPI Nail Envy* and decided against a base colour as I wanted it too look like a natural nail that had been jammed in a drawer. Ha ha. Sick.
I then chose Nails Inc in Tate to do the bloody tips. I used a kirby grip and dotted where the drips were to end and dragged them upto the tips, so they start blobby and end up thinner. I freehanded the tips and finished with a coat of Seche Vite.

Et voila!

I know they're not perfect but it is my first attempt and somehow I don't think dripping blood plays by the rules anyway. It does look better from far away but on the whole I am quite pleased.
