Nabi: Dark Red Polish For A Halloween Bloody Nails Look

When I first saw this polish, I KNEW I was going to use it as a Halloween manicure! Just look!…

Nabi nailed it with ‘Dark Red’ as THE blood red. This bottle looks like it is filled with blood. Here’s what it looks like on my nails…

This is only one coat. I didn’t mean for it to look so terrible. It so looks like I got bloody nails. Ewwww…

As I was sitting at my table waiting for this coat to dry, I thought I’d see if I could lighten up the mood with this glitter…

‘Lilac Jumbo Glitter’ is also by Nabi and the name doesn’t lie. A translucent pale lavender jelly with hex, bar and micro iridescent glitter. Make that a LOT of glitter business going on. Adding that to ‘Dark Red’ got me this…

I put on 2 coats of ‘Lilac Jumbo Glitter’ over one coat of ‘Dark Red’. I didn’t need a top coat because that glitter laid down very smoothly and is so shiny. This look is a Bloody Birthday Celebration creation. LOL

This is what two coats of ‘Dark Red’ look like on the nail wheel, and then one with two coats of ‘Lilac Jumbo Glitter’…

It’s weird that on the nail wheel ‘Dark Red’ isn’t a blood red but more of a Christmas red.

And the removal was totally gory…

Eeeeee! I have clear soak-off gel on my nails and ‘Dark Red’ stained them bad. I was going to soak off the gel and reapply anyway but DANG!! This looks like I got my nails caught in a grinder!

In scrutinizing the gory photo, I see that my nail beds look rather healthy and that my free edge is really my own; no enhancements. I just had the clear bottom and top soak-off gel on them. And, thankfully, my nails grow fast. I wish the nick on my middle finger would heal as fast. But, with the nature of my work, I bump that area almost every day. Poor finger!!!
