"This Is Halloween" Challenge: Zombies

I hope you are enjoying your Monday! I have another post for the This Is Halloween Nail Art Challenge. Today is zombies. I'm not a big fan of zombies, but deciding on a design was fun.

This design was inspired by The Daily Nail. Her skin seems to be sliding off and bunching up. Mine is melting off in blobs. I started with one coat of Julep Molly. When it was completely dry, I added two coats of Julep Alyson. I wish I had a nude closer to my own skin color. I think it would have made it creepier looking. When it was beginning to dry but still tacky, I used my finger to gently push the nude polish toward the tip of my nail. For the oozing globby blood, I used Julep Demi and Essie Blood Curdling. To give the blood a nice shine but keep the glob look, I dabbed on Gelous with a nail art brush. Finally for depth, I smudged on Barielle Back to Nature to give the flesh some dimension. I cleaned up a little, but I think leaving it unperfect made it more fitting for zombie nails.
