Happy Halloween!

And finally, it’s Halloween!  Despite the fact that I’m not actually doing anything fun this year (I don’t even have any candy!), it’s still one of my favorite holidays.  I wish I was doing something more, but oh well.  I got to paint my nails at least.

I went ‘gross’ for today’s nail art, and did nails inspired by a bloody design by The Daily Nail.

And because I was curious if I could pull it off, I also tried out PiggieLuv’s bloody scratches idea on my thumb.  I didn’t bother with acrylic paint or blood gel, just my nail polish.  I think it turned out pretty well though.  I also added a bit of a darker tone to make the flesh look mottled and unhealthy.

I’m really pleased with how these turned out.  They look pretty nasty in person. 😛
