As promised and I really couldn’t wait till tomorrow morning to share this.. a Halloween blood platter design with skulls and maggots.
Why the maggots, well I used to doodle them all over my biology notes and when I commented on Hannah’s lovely doodly floral art earlier this week, it brought back memories. And i thought why not to try and do these maggots I used to doodle onto my nails.
I thought that a blood splatter would be a perfect background but again didn’t want to go with white.. I do hope that this taupe works, at least I love it. Since not all of the splatters came out well, I used black crackle to cover it up a bit.
- taupe – Alessandro Sleek Bamboo
- red – Barry M Raspberry
- black crackle – Sally Hansen Ink Splatter
- for doodling the maggots – Barry M black nail art pen
- skull water decal is from Born Pretty Store
Here’s a close up of the two accent nails
The top coat I’ve used for this one is Poshe super-fast drying topcoat. To create splatters I used regular drinking straw. I still have to work on the angle and from how far I have to blow, but I feel like I am starting to get there. Too bad the prettiest splatters came to the paper I used to protect the working surface XD. Have a lovely Sunday 😉
