Hallo-WEDNESDAY! - I'm Going to Let it Slide


Welcome to the spooky, the creepy, the gory and terrifying Hallo-Wednesday!

Every Wednesday from now until Halloween (which is on a Wednesday!!) I'll be posting a Halloween-themed nail design. A tutorial will follow the design, but will generally be on Thursday or Friday of the same week. :D

First up is EVERY nail maven's horror- smudged nails!?  Ok, so these are 'smudged' on purpose!

The inspiration for this design actually happened by accident! I hastily painted my nails (neglecting to allow proper drying time between coats) and then slapping on fast-drying top coat. This made my top coat of polish dry fast, but the others underneath were still wet, and thus very smudgeable! Well, I went to touch one lightly to test it for dryness, it smudged, and the sliding/melting skin technique was born. :D

Hope you guys like it! :D






I used:

Blood:

American Apparel Downtown LA
Barielle Unravelled Rust
American Apparel Hassid

Flesh:

Zoya Avery
Zoya Flowie


Basecoat: Cult Nails Get it On
Topcoat:  Seche Vite

It puts the lotion on the skin...
