“I want to suck your blooodddd” Vampire Nails tutorial

I love vampires. True Blood is probably in my top 10 shows so much so that I get like an overexcited puppy the day it airs and I might wet myself with glee. Lets just put it out there that I like real vampires. Not those sissy sparkly ones or those brooding teen vamps either. I like the ones who encompass the sexy and slightly aggressive vampire a la Eric Northman. Sho… Anyway back to the purpose of this post.

I find plastic vampire teeth a nightmare, they get way too spitty, remind me of my bite guard and always go way too far back in my mouth and ends up making me gag. Ick. Sis. No.  Today we’re doing vampire nails which is awesome because if you plan on being a vampire this Halloween you can still eat all the snacks and have a normal conversation with your fellow party goers.

Gather your tools: we used Rimmel Nail tip whitener R70, VAO nailpolish in Charming (R69.95 from Beauty Factory), Dischem Life Style False Nails (Princess) R44,95, a pair of nail clippers and a file.

Apply the false nails that fit to the pointer finger and the pinkies only, and once they are dry you can cut them into two points. I chose to cut mine before applying them to my fingers. Then, paint all of your nails solid white. A good quality white like this one goes on very opaque, but since I have trust issues with my nail polishes I chose to apply two coats and allowed it to dry 100%.

Finally, put a blob of red onto a piece of paper and use a little paintbrush to paint ‘blood’ on the ends of the two false nail points.

And voila! Whenever someone asks you what you are for Halloween, you can do this:
