SassyNails NailAween Nail Art Challenge: Day 3 - Bloody Nails

     Hey everyone!  Today I am skipping MSMD Monday to get along with one of my nail art challenges.  This one is hosted by SassyNails on Facebook.  I am on day three and today's challenge was bloody nails.  Now, I'm sure you all have seen  bloody nails around, especially around this time of year, and they all seem to be the same to me.  Now this is ok but I really wanted to do something different, so I came up with this idea.
     After I painted a white base on my nails and it dried, I painted on some red acrylic paint, waited about 30 seconds for it to dry a little and then rolled my finger through it to create a bloody finger print effect.  I think that this turned out pretty cool.  I went to clean up the mani but decided it looked much bloodier if I didn't.  What do you guys think?

Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Base color: Superstar from Pure Ice - 2 coats
Acrylic paint: Crimson Red from Artist's Loft
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

These were taken with the flash because it picked up the red the best

I hope you like these!
