Blood Dipped Tips














I'm Finally getting around to blogging the tutorial for these pretty basic and fast nails. I originally found the base nail design (bloody tips) on another nail blog. SADLY.........I cant remember where I originally saw it, though I have searched. SO if any one recognizes this design...
PLEASE COMMENT BELOW WITH LINK, i want the designer to be properly credited.
Any how, when I saw it, I loved the design immediately. So, when Halloween designs were swirling in my head, I remembered the wonderful bloody tips! Here I simply added the skull, and created an accent nail
*************************************************************************
EDIT FROM ORIGINAL POST:
Thank you Trinca for finding this picture and web page. Nihrida created this amazing manicure: the original manicure I used for my inspiration.
Very Beautiful, and the red is SO VIVID, way better than mine.. If I had I remembered where I found it in the first place..I'd have read to see what red she used. Please visit her website to see all her amazing work. I'll never forget her website now....because I'm gonna add it to my Blogroll.
********************************************************************
Here's what you'll need:
Black base color, red polish for accent nail, and tips. White & Black SP polish, and plates from the BOO! Kit. m13, m28
here's how to create the look:

1. Polish all nails with 2X base color

2.Stamp images. I do this first because the painted tips take a while to dry. Rather than wait the drying time before konadding, save time, konad first!

3. Polish tips with red in a sloppy bloody pattern, being careful around the skeleton image.

Of course this idea occurred to me AFTER this konadi....on the next Konadi I did for my M-I-L. But, i think it would look great on these nails!
