I'm super excited for this mani and post!
First off, I have the possibility to express my "manly" geeky side, who loves splatter movies,
and this way I can also write a post about cinema, one of my passions, and more prcisely a compared movies post about one of my favourite directors: Quentin Trantino!
So it has been sooooo fun to do this nail art, I really needed one of my funny nail painting moments, and it has been as messy as I like it to be! :)
This is the tutorial I've been inspired by, and this is how my work place looked after application..
As you can see the funniest part is that to acheive this look you litterally have to blow your nail polish out of a straw!..and aboviously it will be all over the place when you're done..
As a base I've used my KIKO 215 which is a whitey pearly shade with hints of pink
I was super happy because for the bloody part I had the perfect bottle: SAROME n.5, from Sri Lanka, as you can see it really looks like a blood color, being it a super pigmented, dark, intense red.
Now, as I've said this manicure is dedicated to one of Trantino's favourite and best characters:
The Blood Splattered Bride
This is also the title of a '70's B movie he was inspired by to build his Beatrix Kiddo's background in the movie "Kill Bill", and here are some pictures from both movies, just to settle the right setting and climate.

And finally..The Mani!!!
Before cleaning it was even more scary..
This is one of the fewest cases in which I really belive that the top coat makes a huge difference!!
I am in love and happy with this mani, not your usual nail art, but next time I'll try to place the blood better on my nails, since I feel like some have too much and some too little.
Cleaning part is a hell of a dirty work, but someone has to do it..and this reminds me of one of my favourite Tarantino's characters:
Ladies and gentleman, Mr. Wilston Wolf!
