Cartoon Zombie Nails

Today's post has a load of groaning cuteness! By that I mean cartoon zombie nail art! I was once again inspired by the talented @jauntyjuli. When I saw these I knew I had to recreate them, they were so cute! 

To start this adorable manicure I applied base coat as always. I then used a neon green polish and applied two thin coats. After the base color completely dried, I used a small brush and pink acrylic paint to draw and fill in a lumpy shape in the upper right-hand corner of my nail. While that was drying, I used black acrylic paint and a large dotting tool to create two oval eyes and a lopsided mouth shape. The pink was dry by this point, so I used a detailing brush and red and black acrylic paint to give texture to and outline the brain shape. I then used brown acrylic paint to draw some random scuffs and bruises on the zombie. Lastly, I used a dotting tool, a detailing brush, and white acrylic paint to finish the eyes and draw some jagged teeth. Once everything was dried completely, I applied a layer of fast dry top coat to seal the design.
