31DC2013 - Day 29: Inspired by the Supernatural? Asylum Ghosts!!

Today's mani was inspired by those tortured, vindictive, un-revenged (is that a word?) souls that always seem to haunt ghost like asylum places - know what I mean?

I wish I could've managed something better, because the idea was a really good one. 
Instead all I came up with was this:

For a change, I'll start with my favourite nail :)
I really like how I managed to make the hand print on this one - although the blood drips and the blood pool at the bottom are just... yep, pretty bad ;)

I started it all with a white base of Bellaoggi Snow White.
A couple of sponging was done afterwards using a light yellow, a nude and a black polish to fake the dirty wall look - they're there - it's just the bad photographing doesn't let you see them ;)

I also added some squares in light lilac to imitate the tiles one can find in an asylum.
And then I tried to write/draw «Beware» and «Help» as if it had been done with blood and was dripping.
Yeah... not that successful either ;)

Overall this was a weird mani to carry around on my nails today and the only reason I'm showing you this is because I'm fed up and tired of the 31DC2013.
I want to be done with it this weekend, because I've got other things I want to do, know what I mean?!
And I know it's my blog and I can ditch this challenge if I want to, but then I've got this freak in me that likes to see things done till they're finished *annoying*

Anyway, leave me your comments on this one down below, if you feel these are somehow deserving of it  *feeling frustrated*

Sorry all the grumpiness - I'm just too tired. Actually, forget tired, I'm exhausted! 
Going to bed now! :)
See you tomorrow and I promise I'll be in a better mood ;)

Hugs & Kissies,

    1. You're right, Anastasia! I forgot mentioning it, but I think the blood in the pinkie looks rather 'natural', too :) Thank you!**

  4. Heyyyyy Mina! Don't be grumpy! ^^ Those nails may not be the best but I like them a lot! The idea is fantastic, and that's what really matters too. You always come up with those amazing ideas! I like the one with "help" specially, I think it's done really well! :) Keep it up and you'll soon be done!

    I understand why you think it's annoying not to finish, it's called commitment and you have it in you, girl! ;)
