Hey Witches, when looking for inspiration for spooky Halloween looks on you tube I came across this creepy unzipped face make up tutorial….ugh…by beautifulyouworld.com.
What a fantastic job this girl does with lots of different gory make up looks and she always says “Hello beautiful!” which makes me laugh. So I thought I’d try to recreate this look on nails, I like the contrast between the “normal” pretty face and the bloody unzipped part.
I started with some fake nails, painted in OPI “My Vampire Is Buff” to mock that lovely natural skin tone look. Then I applied some zipper water slide decals that I bought from Born Pretty online store. These were really easy to use and for $2….why didn’t I buy more??? I applied a top coat to seal them in place and then carefully cut the fake nails, along the edge of the zipper using nail clippers. I painted the part of my finger nail that was going to be exposed, a deep red and added black and Revlon Red using cling (saran) wrap. This was a perfect way to apply the polish, it gave texture and depth. Once I had stuck the fake nails on, I applied some lip pencil and purple eyeliner sparingly and also smudged some old black mascara around.
I had been saving on old piece of lamb bone just for this occasion and only noticed after I had taken the photos that the marrow is much the same colour as the exposed flesh part of my nails. Awesome! Thanks for looking.
