Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have some halloween zombie nails to share with you! This was my first time doing nails that were more "special effects" and I was really happy with how they came out!
I started with a dry base coat of LynBDesigns B-Stronger and started applying a DIY homemade black jelly to my nails. I intentionally dirtied the underneath side of my nails so that they looked more gross. After the black jelly was partially dried, I went back with a coat of Revlon Holographic Pearls and allowed it to mostly dry. I added another coat of the black jelly and then topcoat with Seche Vite. Once my polish layers were starting to get tacky, I went in with my metal cuticle pusher and started gouging out different "wounds" into my nails. Once I was happy with the gouges in my polish, I went back with FormulaX Boundless Berry to fill in the wounds and then went back and messed the red up with the metal cuticle pusher and then allowed it to dry. I did not topcoat again because I wanted it to be really bumpy and uneven.
To add the gangrenous look around my nails, I used the matte black from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and Slowburn from the Urban Decay Electric pallet and dusted them around my nails with an angled eyeshadow brush. And that's it! If you'd like to see a live tutorial, click below to head over to my Youtube channel:
