For Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2013 runway show, the designer picked this look for the models’ nails and for Halloween, it’s perfect! So here’s how to do it, step-by-step.
Step 1: Apply a base coat.
Step 2: Apply one coat of a creamy pale polish, like OPI Mimosas for MR & Mrs
Step 3: Use a bobby pin dipped in the deep red polish (I picked OPI Red) to plop on a little bit of color to the nail. Drag the polish upward toward the tip of the nail.
Step 4: Repeat 1 – 2 times per nail. You can even add a little random dot elsewhere as an extra “spatter.”
Step 5: Connect the drips with a line of polish across the top. It doesn’t have to be perfect straight; it can look like a messy French manicure (i.e. any French manicure I do on myself). Wait for the polish to fully dry.
Step 6 (optional): Apply a top coat for extra shine (For fast drying and high-gloss shine I highly recommend RapiDry by OPI)
