Nail Art Prabal Gurung Blood Drip Ox Blood Nails Spring 2013

1. Dark shades are especially prone to staining your nails, so begin with a base coat.

2. Use a tiny nail art brush to paint the free edge of each nail—almost like you’re doing a French manicure. No need to be overly delicate with your lines, as the blood drops will cover any errors.

3. Depending on how opaque your ox blood polish is, the French tip may require a second coat.

4. Use a dotting tool to place three dots on each nail: Two near the middle of the nail for the drips and one at the base of each nail. Make sure the placement of these dots varies on each nail.

5. With a smaller dotting tool, connect the dots to the French tip.

6. Let the ox blood nail polish dry, and then apply a top coat for extra shine.
