I love me some good blood and guts manis lol, and whilst I can't compete with some of the incredible ripped nail manis I've seen other bloggers do, I quite like the subtlety of this one.
This is partly inspired by The Walking Dead, partly inspired by patchwork designs, and partly inspired by a monster who might have to stich pieces of skin together if we wants a whole body ..... happy Halloween hahahha.
Quite a few polishes were involved in the making of this mani. I wanted the skin to look dead, gangrenous and bloody and unhealed, all at the same time.
My base was Pandora's Polish Chai Latte, which I sponged over (not entirely) with white. I then added splodges of Cadillacquer When You're In Hell, Only The Devil Can Help You Out, and Run, You Clever Boy by Digital Nails. Both are slightly gangrenous polishes - one being green with reddish shimmer, the other sheer ruby with green shimmer.
When I was happy with my base, I added my scars and stitching in Cadillacquer You've Got Red On You, a brilliant dark (dried crusty blood) burgundy, with red glitters.
I wanted a mizture of effects - stitches, tears, gouges, oozing, scars - pretty much as disgusting as I could manage.
