Twinsie Tuesday: Halloween Nails

Once again, it's Twinsie Tuesday!  This week's theme is "Halloween".

 I've been meaning to try a "blood splatter" manicure (who says this!?)  and figured this was the perfect time to go ahead and give it a shot!

I used Barielle "Beaches & Dreams" as my base color (post on that one soon- it's so pretty!), then I mixed Julep Catherine with a little bit of clear polish, added a dash of OPI Onyx and it gave me a pretty fabulous bright red blood polish. I dipped a straw inside the bottle that I mixed it in and used it like a dropper, sealing the top of the straw with my finger, and letting go when I wanted the polish to drip and splatter.  As you can imagine, the clean up for this was quite annoying, but I love how it turned out:

Don't forget to check out the other Twinsie's Halloween nails.  I can't wait to see what they have done!
