Halloween Nail Art - Bloody Brains

Hey guys!

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.

  4. This is so creepyawesome--I love it! I actually think the Valentine-ish colours work to its advantage; they set you up for thinking it's all hearts and sweetness, and THEN you notice the bleeding brains. It's perfect! ^_^

  5. Cool idea :), though I agree the colors are a bit Valentine-y. I'd try it with some grey polishes, perhaps with some areas done in grey mixed with a bit of pink. Then the blood will leap out at you (hopefully not literally, haha)!

  6. I love this idea! But for some reason, it makes me think of intestines. I guess I'm just weird like that. =)
