Murder Scene

Hey everyone!

A little while after that balloon fail I posted I sat down to try another manicure.

I'm stepping away from all the pretty purples and pinks and showing you something a little more risqué. Not sure if I'm using that word right but it sounds cool so it's happening.

A few days ago I was browsing Google for unique patterns I could work with and I found a tie with the most amazing murder scene pattern on it! I don't know what company makes it or where the picture is originally from but I knew I had to create this manicure ASAP.

Plus I received a hot black glitter from Wet N Wild and this was the perfect way to use it!


For this manicure I used Wet N Wild Blackmail as the base. Then I drew the white outlines using Wet N Wild Hush Hush. After the outlines of the people were dry I drew yellow stripes with Zoya Creamy, my all time favorite yellow! The words "CAUTION" were carefully written with a nail art brush and Rimmel London Black Satin.

I was going to add blood to some of the nails but then thought it'd be too much, so I didn't.

Now, you know I couldn't finish this post without showing you the amazing Wet N Wild Blackmail, a gorgeous black with gold/silver micro glitter! I had trouble capturing the beauty of Blackmail. This is 3 effortless coats, two coats would've been fine but the camera picks up on bald spots.

And the tie that started it all...


So what do you  think? I'm curious to see if you guys like this design. I know I fell in love with the pattern as soon as I saw it.
