Slasher Flick

Hi everyone!  I'm always so excited for October - because that means a whole lot of scary movies are all over the TV lineup for Halloween!!  I'm a horror movie fanatic, so I thought I'd do a little slasher inspired mani today.


I started with two coats of Fire and Blood, followed by one coat of SV.  I love how vibrant this red is, and the red holographic glitters really make it pop!  I chose this one immediately because I knew how well it would stand out against the black and white I would be using.


I applied four pieces of striping tape to each nail in a random pattern.


Using a porous sponge, I applied a gradient using OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and Sinful Colors Black on Black.  I immediately removed the tape, and finished with one coat of SV.


This is my first go at using black and white for a gradient, and I love the look of it!  


I am so crazy about how well Fire and Blood stands out against the gradient!  It really reminds me of slashes!!


I had so much fun creating this mani.  I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!




Colors: Smitten Polish Fire and Blood, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Sinful Colors Black on Black
