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
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!

2. you will also need a sheer base pink/blush
and it is a very forgiving design because of the space inbetween each graphic. Some of the other tips HAVE TO BE PERFECT and can be trickier.

Here is what you will need:
1. purpleish base color I used OPI mini from the kit below.
2. black color for tips.
3. konad black SP
Plates m1, m7, & m13
Here's how to do it.
1.Paint base coat.
2. Paint tips black. I first attempted to konad the tip (this glow polish has some adhesion issues...so if you plan to konad the tips, I recommend you apply a clear coat first over the glow base to help the konad image transfer) but has some issues. I usually freehand tips because it is always easier & faster for me. It is also more predictable. As much as I love Konad...the french tip plateis useless to me!
3. Apply the little skull to all fingers except the pinki (unless you have a wide nail, it probably will not fit) I skipped my ring finger because it too is too small.
4. Stamp the shoelace design (one i thought i'd never use!) abstractly around the skull, to give it a Frankenstein look. Add small spider from m1 where ever you can or to fill "bald" areas.
