Hi everyone. Today, I’m going to show you how to DIY these cute Halloween Scream nails for the upcoming spooky season.

I love this design and I hope you will too. Each of my nails is different. Some have stars, some have blood drips, others have the scream face on them. You can decide which nail has which specific design. Let’s get into it.

Tools and materials:

  • Hot pink glitter nail polish
  • Candyfloss-pink nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Black nail polish
  • Dotting tool
  • Fine line brush
  • Rhinestones
Applying base coat

1. Apply base coat

Start off by painting your nails with a glittery, hot pink base coat. Mine is a bit see-through, so I went back and did a second coat. 

Adding blood drip design

2. Blood drip design

Next, we’re going to be adding blood drips, but using a candyfloss-pink color because we’re keeping the design cute!

Use a dotting tool to add a few dots ¾ of the way up the nail. Then, pull the dot towards the cuticle to create a dripping-blood effect.

Use a fine line brush to add a reverse french tip to the nail.

Creating star design

3. Star design

Add stars to the nails with a fine line brush and white nail polish.

Simply add dots to the nails, then draw a fine cross through the dot. 

Creating Scream face design

Watch the video from 5.36 - 10.46 to see how I create the Scream face.

There’s a fair amount of detail so use a fine line brush for this part of the tutorial. Add a topcoat. 

Adding bling

5. Bling design

I have a couple of nails left that are just plain so I’m going to go ahead and add some bling to these with some nail glue.
