Bloody Cuticles

5 Oct

Oops… I got a little carried away with the cuticle trimmers. Just kidding!  Joshing… Do you remember back in the day when you would say, “I’m just joshing with ya!”  No?  You don’t remember that?  I may have just aged myself.  Sorry.  Not sure where that came from.  Tangent over.

Happy Fright-Day.  That’s what I’m deeming Fridays in October; Fright-Day.  I had the idea for this design the other day and just had to jump on it.  I’m in love with this mani!  I love the elegance of the classic white french manicure coupled with the dripping blood of a cuticle trim gone awry. ;)  Just so you know, I don’t trim my cuticles with scissors or chemicals.  I just push ‘em back and moisturize.

I think it’s a fun way to do a Halloween mani.  I used Julep Brigitte for my french tips.  My blood is China Glaze Velvet Bow with a little OPI DS Indulgence thrown in here and there to spice things up.

What do you think of my gory cuticles?  What Halloween manis do you plan to try?

      Your boys would probably want you to do it to their nails too. :)
