So, these nails may be a bit silly, but I love them:
They fit within the blood and guts theme for #BHBSpooktober, but I’ve been itching to do this mani for awhile. In real life, I am a criminal attorney. By day, I handle cases that are, at times, gruesome. By night, I design unicorn inspired manis. This mani is inspired, in part. by my chosen career. The moment I saw this plate on Messy Mansion’s site. I knew it had to be mine!
Here’s what I used:
From left to right: HKGirl, Essie Grow Stronger, Poshe quick dry, Messy Mansion 028, Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow, Konad Black, Mundo de Unas Red, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

Here is what my minty fresh mani looked like:
I am happy with this as a kitschy homage.
Thanks for stopping by…Stay tuned…there is always something ridiculous on the horizon!
