Good morning! Here’s Day 2 of my personal Halloween nails challenge. I decided to do the flesh rip type of nails. Skin, blood and gore! This is perfect for Halloween. Right?
I have never done this type of look before. I was worried it wouldn’t come out right but much to my surprise, this was the easiest thing to do! So much grotesque fun!
So to achieve this look I used two different OPI colors. I used Dutch Tulips (on the right) and Don’t Pretzel My Buttons (on the left).
I really love how opaque Don’t Pretzel My Button is. If you paint on one somewhat thick coat, it will completely cover the red. Here’s how I did it.
1. Paint two coats of Dutch Tulips or any other red color you may have at home.
2. Paint on a thick coat of Don’t Pretzel My Buttons or any other skin time color you may have at home.
3. Wait until it’s tacky but not completely dry. Use a dotting tool and scrape either in spots to give it a dug out look or in lines for that deep cut or scratches look.
I didn’t use any topcoat. I suppose one could use a matte topcoat for that matte look with these nails.
Anyway, I hope you were equally grossed out by this just as much I was! Now off to think about nails for tomorrow.
