I tried to recreate a rotting flesh look. It looks grand in the pictures but it didn't really do it for me in real life. I think I should have gone with a deeper red. No harm!
This is another fairly simple manicure to do. It's pretty much the acid wash jeans look that was going around a few months ago. All you do is layer two different polishes over each other, get a cotton bud and dip it in nail polish remover and drag it over the manicure when it has dried. I highly recommend using acetone remover. Non-acetone didn't really take anything off so I had to really push down on it. Hence the crappy end result :P It was a nightmare to be fair. It looked great in my head but on my nails it just didn't translate well enough.
If you are going to try this I really suggest A) using an opaque polish. Both Catrice and illamasqua worked well for me and B) using a quick drying polish. You don't want to be waiting around for ages for this to dry when you are going over it with acetone later on.
So that was my Rotting flesh manicure. I'm not a huge fan of Halloween manicure's so I'm glad it's only on for one day :) Christmas manicure's are way more fun!
Oh and Happy Halloween! xoxo
