Halloween Then And Now - Blood Spatter

Greetings All!

Before I started blogging, the only manicures I really took pictures of were my Halloween ones. They were never intended for anyone elses eyes, but I thought it might be fun to recreate a couple of them, and hopefully see that I've improved over the last year!

The first of these is blood spatter. Here is this years manicure.






Beauty UK White and OPI Got The Blues For Red. Last years nails weren't technically splatter nails, as I just painted the red on!


Still quite bloody looking! I remember being really happy with these at the time, although I think this years nails are definitely better!

I also recreated these nails in January, for the new 31DC.


I prefer my most recent ones. Should I have this many bloody manicures? Maybe not! But it is an easy, effective technique.

    Did you just splatter these with a straw?

  4. Never too many bloody manicures! Looks great. I'm going to have to try the normal sized straw. I really like the thicker splatters.

    1. Thank you! I have a bit of trouble using a 'puddle' of polish - I now just dip the straw straight in the bottle, and i find it works very well for me!
