These were my Halloween nails last year. I occasionally do special effects makeup, and I wanted to recreate some of the nastier effects on my nails. The results were mixed, but they were definitely pretty gross looking. I actually put flesh latex on my nails, which worked really well for the tearing, but I think it was more trouble than it was worth. I ended up painting over the latex since it’s kind of sheer. I imagine you could get a similar tearing effect by painting on a really thick layer of polish, waiting for it to dry some, and then poking it around with a toothpick or something.
What I used:
tiny half pearls (for the bumps)
CND– Perfectly Bare
Probably a couple other reds and pinks
A shiny topcoat for the blood and a matte topcoat for the skin.
And just for fun, here’s the makeup I wore on Halloween. I was an evil witch!
