Zombie Nail Art

This morning I did zombie nails--Grr, Aargh! A few weeks ago I saw Missy's totally adorable ones at Gnarly Gnails (as well as the originals by Mariko) and knew it was only a matter of time before I tried them for myself. The result is dedicated to my zombie-loving buddies Mabel and Jen. ^_^

The base colour is...well, it's a bunch of stuff. First down was Revlon Muse, a light, pretty olive which I sponged over with China Glaze Recycle (grey), OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window (med/dark olive), and Revlon Elegant (a good 'nude' for me). The eyes are dotted with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (near-white) and Revlon Colorstay Stiletto (black). After that, I dotted on some Revlon Colorstay Velvet Rope for the blood and used an Orly Jet Black nail art striper for the mouths.

I was in such a hurry to send Mabel a picture of these that I started snapping away before I remembered to add a top coat. I actually think they look pretty cool without it, though. The rough sponge texture kind of adds to that whole "zombie flesh" look, and the drops of blood look a little more like, well, like drops of blood.

Y'know, if you're into that kind of thing. ;)
