I know, I know… zombies don’t get their nails done. But if you are one of the many dressing as a zombie this Halloween, here’s a simple way to make your nails match your rotted makeup.
I started with one coat of Essie’s Merino Cool nail polish. You could swap in any taupe, light mushroom, tan, light gray, or creamy skin-toned color (Sally Hansen’s Commander in Chic is another great polish for this manicure!). I recommend only one coat so your color looks a bit uneven and streaky.
Next apply a coat of a gray “crackle-finish” polish, such as Cracked Concrete by China Glaze. Sally Hansen also has a gray crackle top coat that you can find at most drugstores.
Once the crackle finish dries, use a deep red to apply bloody accents to your nails. I chose Berry Hard by Essie. Don’t be afraid to get a little messy. After all, zombies aren’t running around with polish remover.
