Digit-al Dozen: Zombielicious

Hello all! If you're following a lot of nail art blogs you've already seen a vast array of zombie themed nails today, from adorable to absolutely creepy. Today I wanted to re-do a 'grungy' technique I had done before - but tried to put a zombie spin on it with more morbid colors.

This is a gross, sloppy pic before I did clean up! I thought it was funny and more thematic :p

I used Orly Wild Wisteria as my base color and painted on one quick (sloppy) coat, then immediately wiped it off in the center of my nail with a Q-tip. Then I swiped on a coat of OPI My Pointe Exactly (the grey jelly). Since the process requires the polish to be sort of wet and smeary, I do one finger at a time. This color scheme is a lot closer to the original inspiration - the Emma Watson Elle UK cover nails. Not your typical 'zombie' nails, but I like how it does look a little corpse-y!

Here's some quick links to the other Digit-al Dozen ladies!

And here are some links to the other zombie-inspired nail art from the Crumpet's Nail Tarts group!

See you tomorrow with more Halloween nail art!
