So as it's Halloween this week and I've been watching all my favourite scary movies I thought I'd do a Halloween themed NOTD so I went for a Friday 13th themed design partly because the movie is awesome and partly because I've been meaning to try out this splattered effect for a little while.
I painted all my nails with two coats of Barry M- White, at first I tried Nails Inc- Beach for the blood splatters but it was a bit too bright so I mixed it with Nails Inc- Tate to make it a darker blood red. To create the splatters I used a straw, dipping it in the varnish and then blowing at my nails, it was pretty much a case of trial and error as a lot of the time when I blew the varnish wouldn't leave the end of the straw but I did quite enjoy the messy hap hazard method although I foolishly decided not to apply tape around my fingers and so ended up in quite a mess.
To create Jason's hockey mask I used a cocktail stick dipped in Nails Inc- Beach and my Models Own Nail Art Pen in Black, as you can see below the left hand turned out quite well but the right Jason mask looks a little melted but the splatters turned out well on both hands so I thought I'd include pictures of both. Unfortunately when I applied a clear top coat over the splatters it did leave a pinkish tone to the white which is a bit annoying but it does make the Jason mask stand out more.
I'll definitely be trying the splatter method again with other colours, and I'll make sure I tape up my fingers to make less of a mess.
