Halloween nail art tutorial: Zombie ooze / Nohti za noč čarovnic: Zombi sluz

Here is my 2nd Halloween nail art tutorial for the site Licila.si A big trend this entire year are Zombies. These is so much zombie stuff everywhere that I am a bit tired of it . . . But I am a big fan of the movie comedy Shaun of the dead so I decided to make something zombie inspired - I call it zombie ooze. Blood to me is a vampires thing and in my opinion zombies bleed gross green stuff - perfect for Halloween season :)

Tu je moj 2. navodilo za nohte za Noč čarovnic za stran Licila.si Velik trend letos so zombiji. Povsod je toliko stvari povezanih z zombiji, da sem jih že malce sita ... Ampak sem velik fan komičnega filma Shaun of the dead zato sem se odločila narediti nekaj, kar je inspirirano od zombijev - poimenovala sem izdelek zombi sluz. Kri je zame nekaj kar je povezano z vampirji, zombji pa puščajo zeleno sluz, kar je popolna za to sezono :)




 For this look you will need a dark base polish, I used Barry M Blackberry. Then you need 1 or more green polishes that will resemble the puke/ooze look - the best colors are neon greens and yellows. I used Barry M Key lime and BeautyUK Grit FX Printworks. The most important thing is that you have a straw and some paper as base because the technique is quite messy. Also have some scissors handy. And be ready you have to be quite fast for this nail art :)

Za take nohte potrebujete temen lak za bazo, jaz sem uporabila  Barry M Blackberry. Potem potrebuješ vsaj 1 ali več zelenih lakov, ki so podobni bruhanju/sluzi - najboljše barve so neon zelene in rumene. Jaz sem uporabila Barry M Key lime in BeautyUK Grit FX Printworks. Najpomembneje pri tej tehniki je, da imaš slamico in papir za podlago, ker pri tej tehniki, se lahko veliko umaže. Pri roki imej tudi škarje. Pripravljeni bodite za hitro delo pri tej tehniki :)


Step 1:  Apply the base polish. In my case that is Barry M Blackberry. Apply tape around your nail because this is a messy technique as you can see from the pictures below :)
Step 2: Dip the straw in one of the green polishes - I recommend the lighter of the bunch because you never know if it is more opaque then the dark ones. Dip the straw in from 0.5 to 1 cm deep - make sure there is not to much polish at the tip of the straw. Then level the straw with the middle of the nail and blow on the other side of the straw - very fast and very strong - think of ninjas with blow darts :) I recommend that you keep the straw from 0.5 to 1 cm away from the nail when you blow. The distance is important when it comes to how the splatter is distributed on the nail. And be quick about your business or it will dry on the straw.

Korak 1: Nanesi laz za podlago. Jaz sem uporabila Barry M Blackberry. Nanesi lepilni trak okoli nohta, ker je ta tehnika zelo nepredvidljiva, kot je razvidno iz spodnjih slik. 
Korak 2: Pomoči slamico v enega od zelenih lakov, priporočam, da začneš z svetlješim, ker se nikoli ne ve, če bi bil zmožen prekriti temenjšega. Pomoči slamico od 0.5 do 1 cm v lak, pazi, da ni preveč laka na koncu slamice. Potem nastavi slamico vzporedno s sredino nohtov - potem pihni v slamico - hitro in močno - spomni se na nindže in puščice, ki jih pljuvajo preko bambusa :) Priporočam, da je slamica oddaljena od nohta 0.5 do 1 cm, ko pihaš. Razdalja je pomembna ker je od nje odvisno kako se bo barva nanesla na noht. In to se mora vse hitro odvijati, drgače se barva posuši na slamici. 


Step 3: Cut away the part of the straw with the previous color. And repeat Step 2. From the pictures you can see the splatter is something that is quite hard to control. So don't forget to do this nail art technique over some paper and use tape around your nail. 

Korak 3: Odreži del slamice z prejšnjo barvo.  Ponovi korak 2. Iz slik je razvidno kako je nanos barve nekaj kar je težko nadzorovati. Zato ne pozabite to izvajati nad papirjem in uporabiti lepilnega traku na nohtih. 

Step 4: Wait for the nails to dry. Sometimes you can end up with a bit bigger spots on your nail. The less polish there is on your straw or the more runny the formula it is the more it will look like spray. If the polish is a bit more tacky like the Barry M Gellys you can expect longer drying time. Add some top coat if you don't want to much of a 3D look. And we are done! :)

Korak 4: Počakaj, da se nohti posušijo. Včasih nastanejo malce večje pike na nohtu. Manj kot je laka na slamici ali bolj, kot je tekoča formula laka, bolj bo izgledalo, kot da je blio nanešeno s sprejem. Če je lak bolj gost kot so Barry M Gellyi potem lahko pričakujete, da se bodo nohti dlje sušili. Dodajte nad lak, če nočete, da izgledajo nohti preveč 3D. In končali smo! :)


This is a simple but a bit messy technique - the result is worth the while I think. You can use as many green polishes as you want. Or you can go vampire and just layer all types of reds :) If you like this technique and live in Slovenija don't forget to visit Licila.si for all nail art supplies.

To je preprosta toda 'umazana' tehnika - toda rezultat je vreden truda. Uporabite lahko kolikor želite zelenih lakov. Ali pa lahko greste na vampirska pota in uporabite veliko različnih rdečih :) Če vam je ta tehnika všeč in če živite v Sloveniji ne pozabite obiskati strani Licila.si za vse potrebščine.

  4. Love these! I like that the splatter did not cover your whole nail, like other splatter manis I have seen, but spread across your nail. I may have to try this myself!

    1. well splatter is hard to control but if you put the straw close to the nail the splatter wont spread across the entire nail. Good luck :)
