Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns on Patterns - Day 4: Friday the 13th!

Hello again! We finally made it to the weekend! I have (obviously) fallen behind in Digit-al Dozen Week but I am going to play catch up! Since today is Friday the 13th I thought it would be fun to do some spooky-themed nail art. Don't worry, it's not too scary! ;)

Post continued after the jump!

I know this is not technically "patterns" but it is technique on technique which we all agreed was acceptable this week. And I thought it was just really fun! To create the base I used acetone to thin out white polish over a dry black base. I've been using this technique for awhile in other uses but I loved the smoke effect Sarah from Chalkboard Nails got with so I used that as my inspiration. You can see her tutorial here

I added the blood drips using acrylic paint. I just have to say drips are much harder than they look! Overall I was pleased with them but there's always that one nail you wish you could do over again. After my top coat was dry I finished off the look with a matte top coat.

I hope you enjoyed this look! I have a busy weekend ahead but I am hoping to finish off Digit-al Dozen Week this weekend. Make sure to check out all of the other amazing manis below!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
