If you remember last year, I did THIS mani inspired by the promo Blood Will Spill. I had a blast doing them & since this is the final season I had to do something. I went peeking around their Facebook page and settled on THIS picture. I was going thinking of doing another one, but that one just jumped out at me and I HAD to do it.
I started out with a base color of Wet N Wild French White Creme on all 4 nails. For the two outside nails, I was going to do the water spotted method, but I couldn't get the results I wanted....so I water marbled. For that, I used KleanColor Blood, Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers in Vamp Red, and Wet N Wild Black Creme.
The bite mark was a little tricky. I thought about using a straw to make the circle, but went another way instead. What I did was take some red acrylic paint and blob a dot on using the end of a liner brush. Then, I took a damp q-tip and removed the excess paint from the middle. It showed up sort of pink, so I repeated the process using KleanColor Blood. After that, I put a dot of Vamp Red in the middle of that and using a shortened straw sort of "blew" the polish towards the tip of the nail to create the drip. I accidentally applied a little too much, so I took the q-tip and removed most of the polish before applying top coat.
Once the top coat dried, I took a liner brush and drew on the letters using black acrylic paint so that if I made a mistake (and I made a few), I could easily wipe it off and start over again. That took just a few seconds to dry allowing me to almost immediately top it with Seche Vite.
Are you a Trubie? Who is your favorite? I honestly can't choose just one.
