Halloween Challenge! Day 3: Zombies

Hello all! Today was a real challenge! I am not a zombie lover... My idea of a zombie movie is Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead. Those movies are hilarious and as zombie as I'll go. I'm just not a fan. So these nails were pretty hard for me. I needed inspiration and I found it through The Daily Nail. She is an amazing nail artist and I just really love her blog. After watching a great tutorial for zombie-esque nails, I decided to try to mimic the look with my own twist. You can watch the tutorial here.

So I tried to create the creases with blood, just like the Daily Nail. It is much harder to do then you would think! For my own twist, I added in a brain and zombie face. What do you guys think? I find these nails creepy but then again Zombies are suppose to be creepy. 

What I used:
  • 1 coat of Orly Grave Mistake
  • 2 thick coats of Orly Decades of Dysfunction
  • More Orly Grave Mistake for the blood
  • OPI Schnapps Out of It for the crease
  • Sally Hansen Coral Reef for the brain
  • White, black and yellow acrylic paint
  • Fine tipped nail art brush

Next for this challenge is witches! I adore witches, so this should be fun! I have been a witch for Halloween many many times.

Until next time,


  1. i love the 'hillbilly' teeth on him so cute ;) I've seen this tutorial as well ... you did it perfectly ... i have to try it now :)

    1. You do need to try it! It took me a bit to get use to tugging on the polish but it's not too difficult. I'm glad you liked the teeth haha :)

  2. Oh man, that is so awesome how you smooshed the polish to get it all wrinkly and zombie gross. Perfect!!

    1. Thank you, I am so glad you think so!
