Ah, Halloween: that glorious time of year when it's perfectly acceptable to have half of your face look like it's been gouged out or rep blood-stained nails hanging off your fingers. Gory nail art is very effective at bringing the shock value, and is also surprisingly easy to DIY. All you need are some false nails, fake blood, and dark eye shadow.
To try this out at home, cut or split your fake nails open, apply fake blood, and then lightly apply the eye shadow to your cuticles and nail tips to make your talons look dirty and bruised. If you want to go all out, step it up a notch and use special effects modeling wax ($5) to create cuts on your fingers.
Read on to get your ghoulish soul's gory nails fix. But if you don't like blood, be warned: some of these nails are very realistic!
