Since Halloween is just around the corner, we thought we’d show you how to give yourself a super spooky mani. One of our amazing GoJane models (who happens to be a nail art genius) agreed to let us shoot her painting a disturbingly cool blood spatter design. The effect is totally reminiscent of a creepy haunted house or an episode from Dexter. So, of course, it’s completely perfect for Halloween.
Tip: You’ll probably want to do this on paper towels or a plastic bag to avoid causing your house to look like a forensic scene. That might freak out your family or roommates a little bit.
Paint your nails with two coats of white polish.
Let the white polish dry for a couple minutes (just so it isn’t completely wet).
Dab a drop of red polish onto a paper towel, plastic wrap, or other protected surface.
Swirl one end of your straw in the drop of red nail polish. Make sure that it’s completely covered, and the polish is forming a bubble across the opening.
Hold the polished end of the straw a couple inches away from your nail, and blow through the other end. You’ll need to blow pretty hard to get a good spatter effect.
Dip the cotton swab in the nail polish remover, and clean up the polish around your nail.
Rock your spooky spatter nails with some haunted jewelry!
