Bloody Ripped Flesh Halloween Nail Art


I guess I should have warned you about the gruesome images you will be seeing in this blog post. Sorry about that! Don't worry! No nails were harmed in the making of this design! It's all special effects! 

I decided to start coming up with some Halloween nail designs and this was the first one that popped into mind. Ripped flesh! I've been seeing quite a few bloody nail art designs but I wanted to make mind look a bit more realistic than just a painted on blob of blood.

Obviously these nails are for special occasions and aren't practical for every day wear. They won't last for more than a day or two due to the layers of polish and the way they are shredded!


I started by adding a hefty layer of base coat just try and protect my nails as much as I could from the red polish. The red polish I used for the blood is Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby. I wouldn't recommend using something really expensive unless you absolutely have to. Then I topped the red off with some Out The Door top coat to keep it from bleeding ( haha. no pun intended!! ) through to the next color. The flesh color is OPI Samoan Sand. To make Samoan Sand look like real flesh I added a matte top coat and I used Butter London's matte top coat.

Then I went to town shredding it all up with a dotting tool. Pulling, twisting, scratching, stretching. All things that are gruesome and bloody. Adding the matte top coat is perfect because when you shred everything up it leaves the red shiny so it looks like real blood while the skin tone stays matte!


Personally, I think these are fantastic! If you love blood, guts, and gore on Halloween these might be the nails for you! Heck if you're going as a zombie for Halloween these would absolutely compliment your attire perfectly!! And I obviously had to do a weird creepy hand pose in the picture below. It's almost a requirement with nails like these!


Want to give these a try for Halloween? Check out my tutorial below!

    1. I know. :( that's the only downside. It all depends on how fast the polish you use dries.
