Killer Manicure Tutorial

Hi guys! I'm here to give you guys a quick and easy to follow tutorial of my killer manicure which can be found here. A bunch of you asked for it, and I wanted to get it posted before Halloween so people could do it if they like!

 These are the items you will need:

-Ripped up toilet paper
-Elmer's school glue
-Nail art brush
-Black pigment
-Red nail polish (I used Orly's Grave Mistake)

Step 1: Make sure your nails are completely clean, I wiped mine with rubbing alcohol to remove all oils.

Step 2: Apply a thick coat of the Elmer's school glue to your nails.

Step 3: Before the glue dries, apply 3-4 pieces of the toilet paper, or until the glue is no longer visible.

Step 4: Apply a second coat of glue and repeat step 3.

Step 5: Before the second coat completely dries remove excess tissue from around the cuticles, and tuck the paper that is over the free edge under the nail.

Step 6: Dab nail polish around the nail. Don't worry about it getting on or around the cuticles, it adds on to the effect. Dabbing makes it look like some areas are darker than others.

Step 7: Using a little bit of the black pigment, dab it around the cuticles, the tip of the nails, and under the nails to create the drying blood effect.

Step 8: Apply fake blood or food coloring on your hands (not shown) And Voila! You're done! Hope you enjoy your killer manicure ;)

Peace & Love,
