Blood Splatter Nails for Dexter!

Woo, I'm back to my computer! I might be a little late, but I wanted to get this put up sometime today to celebrate my excitement for the return of the TV show Dexter! When it comes to a drama about a serial killer, what could be more fitting than a "blood splatter" manicure?

(Haha I could resist doing a few shots with a big kitchen knife!)

I've seen this done a lot so I can't claim credit for the idea, but I still think I pulled it off pretty well! I started with two coats of Sally Hansen "White On" for the base. Then I took a normal drinking straw, dipped one end in some Zoya "Sooki," and blew splatters onto each nail.

(Here you can see how different each nail is on both hands.)

This method definitely takes some practice and a lot of clean-up. I did several practice splatters on paper before attempting any on my nails. I definitely want to try this again with some of the tiny straws you use for stirring coffee or drinks. I think that would help make the splatters a little more focused.

I always love the return of the awesome fall weather (and the cozy fashion!) as well as the return of all my favorite shows. This season of Dexter looks like it's going to be crazy!
