Nail Art Tutorial: Bloody Prom Queen Nails

One of my all time favorite, gruesome Halloween movies is Carrie. The original one. With Sissy Spacek.


It is the quintessential girl coming of age/embracing her inner rage story. If you haven’t seen it, you need to. Seriously.


So, to commemorate such an awesome movie, and an even more awesome character, I give you Bloody Prom Queen nails!


Here’s what you’ll need: A pink polish; I’m using Wonderful World by Lyrical Lacquer. A black; as always, my trusty Carpe Noctem Under the Cover of Night. A red; I used Autumn Rubies by Bella Bosio. A silver for the tiara; I used White Gold Engagement. You’ll also need a topcoat, a dotting tool, a drinking straw and probably some latex clean up stuff lol.


First up, lay down your pink polish and let dry.


Put your latex cleanup aid on and let dry.


Ok here’s the tricky part. Dip your straw in your red polish and dunk it over and over, to create quite a big blob on the end of the straw. Then taking it and quickly placing it a little above the nail your working on, blow hard and fast. It may take a few times to get it right.


You’ll end up with this awesome splatter effect eventually.


You could just leave them like this. Because seriously, it’s kick ass.


On your thumb and pinky finger, create a bit of a “scroll” like shape that will “connect” when you put your fingers together. Let dry a bit, then add Prom on your thumbnail and Queen on your pinky.


Using a dotting tool or toothpick and your silver polish, create a tiara on one of your nails (I used the middle nail).


Top with topcoat and now you’re set to go wreak havoc on all the unsuspecting prom (or halloween) goers!
