31 Day Challenge Day 8: Metallic

Morning dolls! It's day 8 in the 31 Day Challenge and today's nails are metallic. I was struggling coming up with something that was different than normal metallic nails. So I was sitting at my desk yesterday wondering what could I do? This was my thought process, how about something metal instead of metallic. Because metal things are metallic right! Well, nails are metallic, what about rusty, bloody nails!

Kinda gross right? But I had fun with them! And I think they for sure hit the mark of being different!

In order to get these bloody nails I started with my bare nail and used China Glaze Adventure Red-y to create the brushstrokes. I wiped as much of the polish off the brush as possible and then brushed in random strokes. Then I used a silver Pure Ice polish, honestly I'm blanking on the name mixed with China Glaze Stone Cold and my medium length striping brush to create the nails. Finally added a little definition on some of the nails with Stone Cold and voila!

They may not completely fit the metallic theme, but I think I explained it right? Right?! I've been wanting to do some bare nail nail art for awhile and I'm glad I could incorporate that today.
