Nail-Aween Nail Art Challenge - Bloody Nails with China Glaze Adventure Red-y

On day three of the Nail-Aween Nail Art Challenge, I am presenting my spin on bloody nails. Here's the thing...everyone's seen the blood splatter, and the drip mani. I'm over it, and wanted to do something unique. So, you get to see my interpretation of bloody nails. Take a look!

Bloody nails....under a microscope! I was inspired by my husband who is studying nursing. I remember seeing images of what blood looks like under a microscope with all these tiny blood cells, and opted to translate this onto my nails. I think it turned out pretty well. I started with a base of China Glaze Adventure Red-y. Then I used Priti NYC Red Ace Rose, Essie Apertif, and Essie Meet Me at Sunset to draw in and shade my little blood cells. Here is China Glaze Adventure Red-y all by itself.

  1. GENIOUS! This reminds me of biology and I'm in LOVE!

    1. Thanks! I was pretty happy that when I showed them to my husband and asked him what he thought they were, he said 'red blood cells?'. He was probably joking, but whatever! :)


Feel free to comment, or even ask questions here as well. I try to respond to everyone within a day or two, and would love to hear what you think about my blog in general, the nail art, or any suggestions you may have.
