Get Nailed: Bloody Murder

What you will need:

Clear base coat
Red nail polish
Clear top coat
Toothpick (or other thin, pointed item)

How to do it:

1. As always, start with clean nails and apply a clear base coat.

2. Next, apply red only to the tips your nails a la French manicure, but messier. I used Revlon in Raven  Red.

3. Then, take a pointed tip item like a toothpick, I used a rubber flossing stick (yes,I'm serious) and using the same red polish, drag down from the tip to make thin "drippings" on your nails. This is what will give your nails that "I cut my fingertip off" look.

4. Lastly, apply your clear top coat to get that glossy, bloody finish & enjoy!

Your finished product should look something like this!
