drip nail tutorial

When I posted a photo of my nail wheels on twitter a while ago I was asked by someone to do a tutorial to do the drip nails, so here it is!
You will need:
♥ two nail polishes (I chose OPI 'lucky lucky lavender' and Rimmel 'black cab')
♥ dotting tool (DIY here!)

 Paint your nail in the base colour of your choice (I needed two coats for it to be opaque) 
♥ Once it's dry dot the second colour which you have chosen onto a piece of card
♥ Draw a line across the top of the nail as if you were doing a french tip
♥ Do three dots at different heights near the middle of your nail
♥ With a dotting tool or paintbrush draw lines down from the dots to the french tip. 
♥ I chose to go over mine again once it was dry and I added an extra one at the side so I ended up with four dips down.

I think these would be perfect for Halloween as you could do red drips against a red or white background to look like blood!

as always please send me a photo if you recreate this! I love seeing them! (my twitter name is @islaay_x by the way!)
