HALLOWEEN NAIL ART: Creepy Bloody Handprints Nails

by - October 30, 2021

Honestly, you guys, the fact that we've gotten to the penultimate mani in 31 days of Halloween nail art designs is basically blowing my mind right now - especially since I'm still excited about the different designs I've been able to do. I was actually surprised when I realized that I'd never done bloody handprint nail art, but obviously I needed to remedy that so I kept it really simple and put together this quick and easy mani, perfectly for last minute!

Keep reading for more!

Have I yet sufficially sung the song of how much I absolutely adore Jen & Berries' He Forced Me To Ruin My Dress? I've used it as a base for several designs at this point and it's just basically a dream. It's a crisp white base polish with white shimmer, red metallic flakes, varying sizes of black and white glitter, and some holo flakes as well. I mean... it's basically a perfect nail art base and if J&B were to put out an entire collection of this polish but with a rainbow of different metallic flakes, I would be first in line to buy the whole thing. Honestly, TRYING TO MANIFEST THIS. Ahem. Unfortunately, this was a PPU shade, so if you want it you might have to hunt it down from a destash or something. 

For the mani, I applied two coats of He Forced Me To Ruin My Dress to all of my nails and let them dry down.

For the actual stamping design for this mani, I wanted to keep it simple but also make each nail distinctly different using just two stamping images - a full coverage image with multiple handprints and a small single handprint image. I also wanted to alternate single image and full coverage, which is actually a new technique I've been doing lately and quite enjoying. For my first and middle fingers, I applied the same full coverage image, but shifted the direction of the placement at opposite angles so that both fingers look a little different. For the middle finger and thumb, I applied the single handprint image at the center of the nails. And finally, for my pinkie I went in with one of the smaller handprints from the full coverage image and applied that alone to the center of my nail. 

Once I was happy with the design, I sealed it in with a nail art top coat and then finished with a generous layer of glossy top coat for shine and volume. And voila!

I love how this turned out and I love that I had another opportunity to use this base polish - I swear, this might be this year's Robots Are Forever, especially given that it's not a polish that I can quickly grab a back up of since it was a PPU shade. That said, I'm going to enjoy it rather than hoarding it because that's what we should do with things that we love.

I very much can't believe that we're at the end of this month long marathon of daily nail art, but... here we are.
