Dripping Red

I can’t tell if this mani looks horrific or awesome. Something about a red gradient and then black drips…horror movie or edgy?


I started with a red base (since I wanted even the cuticle edge of my nail to be slightly red), and added a white-red-dark red gradient over it. Once that was dry and top-coated, I did a clearwater + black marble that was super easy…just dragging once through the water! The hardest part was drying to center the drag on my nail.


I thought it looked a bit too plain, so I added some glitter at the end, which I now regret. Maybe if the glitters were smaller it would look better, but it ended up just looking a bit messy to me! Oops.
