Here’s the thing, ya’ll: sometimes a girl just wants to paint the bleeding head of an iconic French woman on their nail. This look is for anyone who feels that.

What you’ll need:

  1. White nail polish for your base. I didn’t have any, so I used a nail pen. Sue me. Mine is from Sally Hansen. You’ll also want a black one.
  2. Red nail polish for the bloooood. Mine is the NYC In a Minute Color in Rivington Red.
  3. Gold or Yellow polish for Marie’s hair. I used the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Golden-I.
  4. A darker than white polish for Marie’s skin. Mine is the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Bare Hug.
  5. A top coat. I’ve got NYC’s Long Wearing Top Coat.

Step 1: Paint your nails white.

Step 2: Locate your thumb, and put a lil’ circle face on it.

Sry about my gross cuticle (cue: “Nobody’s Perfect” by Hannah Montana).

Step 3: Add some hairs to your face.

It’s okay if Marie looks like the Bride of Frankenstein or a Vegas Elvis. It’s all a part of the process.

Step 4: Let this dry and add some bloody drips to your other fingers.

I advise a very professional method called: “put a big glob on the end and blow it until it moves.” Hi I have bratwurst fingers.

Step 5: Outline Marie’s head in black & add little eyes.

Also, add lots of blood and splatters. Mmmmm.
