I was loving all the skulls yesterday! Today was a trickier one for me. I included this one to push everyone's boundaries... because there isnt a whole lot of vampire nail art out there (trust me, I googled looking for inspiration... not a lot haha)

Without further ado, I introduce my vampire!
OMG, I cant even tell you how happy I am with these!! This is exactly what I had in my mind, and it's the BEST when it translates onto my nails how I see it in my mind! It either works wonderfully (example above) or it fails miserably. Im not going to lie, I stressed out all day yesterday thinking about what I was going to do if I failed! Hahaha
I used Ulta Set In Nude as the base for the first three nails and Nina Ultra Pro Black on my pinky. Whimsical Idea's by Pam Boo was added over the Nude on my middle finger to give my vampire an eerie, vampire glow. Then I used Barielle Elle's Spell for the blood drips, and my Stripe Rite silver striper to make my cross and topped it off with a red rhinestone.
For the vampires face I used my Stripe Rite black stiper for the thin line details and OPI Alpine snow for the white of his eyes and his teeth. Tipping the teeth off with my LA Art Deco red striper.
I cant get over these... I sure am going to be sad to take these off tonight to do my candy for tomorrow!!
