It's Alive!7:00 AM
It's day four of the Digit-al Dozen's Halloween week challenge and today I decided to go all out! I wanted to use texture and color to create a sort of bleeding monster/zombie effect on my nails. I thought this over for a few days in my head and I had several ideas of how to go about it but at the end of the day it sort of just came together. I started with a muted green base color, OPI Stranger Tides. You can't see TOO much of it on the final design but you can see it just a bit. After that I used China Glaze It's Alive and lightly sponged it randomly for a little bit of color and sparkle. I topped that with China Glaze Lightning Bolt, a white crackle. Then I sponged Zoya Dree on top of that to make it look greener in places and THEN finally, I used China Glaze Velvet Bow to add the 'blood' and sponged on some red areas. No top coat because I wanted the red to stay glossy and the other to be flat and textured. It sounds like a lot of work but it really wasn't that time consuming. Don't forget to check out what the other ladies came up with for this challenge!!
