These are the products I used, feel free to use any colors you like. This can be re-created with cute pale colors or dark and gross like mine.

Step One: base coat should be a nude color (I used New York Color’s – Fashion Safari).

Step two: with a dark red or plum color draw a half circle near your cuticles. This will add dimension to your design.

Step three: with a makeup sponge dab on a dark red polish near the cuticles and the edge of your nails. Follow the same step with a purple or plum color. Using the two nail colors will give your design a bit of contrast and dimension making it look more realistic.

Step Four: using the same makeup sponge (cut off the previously used section so you have a new clean surface) add the nude color used as the base and dab on to the entire nail. This will smooth out any harsh line.

Step five (optional): use a small brush or a cotton swab (Q-tip), dip it in acetone and clean up the skin around the nail. OR, you can leave it all messy like to give a nastier effect. Totally up to you.

Here you have it Zombie Nails!
