Digit-al Dozen: My Bloody Valentine

Sorry, just couldn't get through a week of Love & Heartbreak without doing a semi-morbid, blood-themed set of skittles! These are maybe my favorite nails of the week because it is so fun when messiness is encouraged. I took like 984032 photos of these but managed to pick only three!




My base color is 2 coats of Orly Pure Porcelain, a light dusty pink color which worked perfectly as an innocent base. Then I did different heart and blood designs with a combo of smudged stamping, painter's tape, and sloppy dotting. Seriously, so entertaining to use all the things I normally do in a sloppy way instead of stressing about placement, smudges, etc. I used HK Girl over my base color, but did not top coat the designs because I like the raised texture of the smears and blobs. All in all, I am pleased as punch and had the hardest time taking this off!
