Dripping Blood

1. Apply one base coat, and then use your dotting tool or tooth pick to paint three red dots on your nail. Don't be shy with the amount of polish your dot has—it should really look like a blood drip. Draw two across from each other and one a little farther down the nail, almost creating three points of a triangle.

2. Immediately after, take your tool of choice and drag the polish up from the dot to the tip of the nail.

3. Use the side of your red nail polish brush to gently fill in the top of the nail so all "blood lines" connect. Wait at least 15 minutes before applying your top coat so the blood doesn't…wait for it…bleed.

Ghost Face

1. Apply one base coat, and then paint your entire nail with two coats of black polish. Let dry for five minutes. Using your dotting tool or tooth pick, create a free-style circle shape (the messier, the better—it's a ghost!). Let dry for three minutes.

2. With black polish, create three circles with your tool of choice—two smaller ones for the eyes and one bigger oval one for the mouth. Let dry for one minute.

3. With white polish, use your tool of choice to dab two small white dots inside the black eyes. Wait 15 minutes, and seal with your top coat.

Dracula Teeth

1. Apply one base coat, and then paint your entire nail with two coats of black polish. Let dry for five minutes.

2. Using the side of your red nail polish brush, dab lacquer over the edges of the top and bottom of the nail. The messier the better to really give it that bloody effect, but make sure you leave enough space to draw in the teeth. Let dry for three minutes.

3. Using your white nail polish striper or tooth pick with white nail polish, draw four long fangs (two on top, two on bottom), starting from the blood, curving your way up. Fill in little teeth inside the fangs (2-3 depending on how big your nail is) and 2-3 outside the fangs. Wait 15 minutes, and seal with your top coat.

Googly Eyes

1. Apply one base coat, and then paint your entire nail with two coats of black polish. Let dry for five minutes.

2. Using your dotting tool or tooth pick, create two small dots with white nail polish. Let dry for 1-2 minutes.

3. With black polish, use your tool of choice to dot in the googly part inside of each "eye." Since this is a googly eye, the positioning is totally up to you—have fun with choosing the best spots. Wait 15 minutes, and seal with your top coat.
