More Halloween nail art for you today! I wanted to do something zombie related, and since I've already done "zombie flesh" nails, I thought that I could try doing some brain nail art. And to take it a step further I decided to make bloody brains!
I think they turned out cool, but the colours came out a little too Valentine's Day-ish for my taste. I think that unless you know what the design is supposed to be, it just looks like an abstract Valentine's Day design.
The base colour I used is OPI Party in My Cabana, which in the bottle looked like the dusty mauve colour that I was going for, but it seemed to turn out much more pink than I had thought.
To create the actual brains, I googled a photo of a cartoon brain and then just sort of mimicked the shapes using a small detail brush and China Glaze Dance Baby, and I highlighted that with strokes of Wet 'n' Wild French White. The blood splatters were done using a mix of Nicole by OPI Deeply in Love and China Glaze Salsa.
I might try this again in more appropriate colours later in the month, as I'd really like to see how it looks with a more creepy/gory look to it.
