DIY Drippy Nails

DIY Drippy Nails
We were immediately inspired the moment we saw bare nails with blood-like, drippy polish accompany Prabal Gurung‘s spring collection at New York Fashion Week. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays and thus, the timing couldn’t have been better to recreate this deliciously daring DIY for our phalanges. Though a more vampy, burgundy color went down the runway, I went for more vibrant red . . . but the best part about this tutorial is that you can make it your own with just about any color, for any season! You’ll need: Dip the toothpick into the nail polish bottle so that the tip collects a round bead of polish. Place the bead of polish on a bare nail and drag it upwards, creating a tapered line. Create two to three more tapered lines, re-dipping the toothpick into the polish each time. Reload the toothpick with polish and drag a line across the tip of the nail. Repeat the steps on the other nine fingers and voila, you’re done!! (all images by HonestlyWTF)

The Digi Nails – A Hybrid Manicure I’ve been seeing lots of outrageous nail art lately on pinterest. One hot new product that’s really caught my eye is adhesive nail polish strips. I love the funky designs and bold colors with these products, but they’re usually a little spendy for me. I have a great alternative and I’m super-excited to share with you a really fun, new way to use digital scrapbooking supplies! We are going to give ourselves a little hybrid manicure.

Owl Nail Art Tutorial For this design, you will need several colors of polish, I used OPI San-Tan-Tonio, Color Club Almost Famous, Color Club Twiggie, Sally Hanson Lacey Lilac and a Black and white. YOu will also need dotting tools, or your prefered method of making dots. I used a small detail brush for some elements, but you could also just use the dotting tools or a toothpick. I started with a base coat of San Tan Tonio, this color is prefection and a must have, in my opinion! I then used a large dotting tool to add two large circles connecting in the middle, this will make the mask for the owl, I used the same color and a detail brush to add the wings. Next I added in white with the large dotting tool.

Corpse Nails I got a note last week after posting the Bettle Burnout Nails asking what I meant by corpse nails. Since I woke up a little early today (and was confident my doctor’s office staff had a good sense of humor) I decided to do a quick tutorial on how to sponge in this zombie-like manicure. Same deal with the beetle nails, this is all about the light sponging and layering. I started with a base of Essie Great Expectations in 3 coats (for a color like this, I don’t mind the extra work, and because it’s on the sheer side it’s a good match for this design) then used ZOYA Charity to sponge around the tips.

I did a little Google detective work to see how to recreate it, and was surprised at how easy it is! All of the tutorials I found called for vodka or other clear distilled spirits, but we were fresh out. I used isopropyl alcohol instead, and it seemed to get the job done. I tried a quick and dirty version this afternoon to share it with you:
