True Blood nail art

True Blood is one of my favourite TV programmes, and it just started it's 5th season yesterday, so I did some True Blood inspired nail art to celebrate! It feels like I've been waiting for season 5 for ages, I have certainly missed some Alexander Skarsgard in my life...

Red and black gradient, blood spatter, an attempt at the logo and some blood drips. The red is China Glaze Winter Berry, a perfect blood-red that I got on sale in Sally's for £2! If you want to know the other colours used, just ask in the comments.

Also, I think it's time I made a Facebook for my blog. I've been avoiding it as lord knows Facebook is a pain. All of you who have one for your blog, did you make the page from your regular personal account, or did you make it completely separate? What is the best way to do it?

  1. Love these! I watched the new episode earlier, was it just me that wasn't completely wowed by it? I didn't feel like it was a massive welcome back episode.

    I originally created a completely different Facebook account to set it up, as I wasn't sure how it would be with my main Facebook page. But once it was created, I added my personal account as an admin, so now it's always on my homepage and I can just update it as and when I want to, if that makes any sense to you?

    1. I haven't actually seen it yet! I'm watching it tonight!

      That does make sense, thanks :) the only thing I don't want is for my blog facebook to appear on my personal facebook in any way, if you know what I mean

    2. Yeah I know what you mean! That's why I made a new account cause I didn't want people who know me to see things about my blog, haha!

      I still haven't let me boyfriend read it, there's just something about letting people I know IRL see it that scares me!

      But yeah, even if you add your personal facebook page as an admin, it won't show up on your wall for others to see, it will just be a tab on your homepage (not profile page) and when you write on it, it will show you as 'Brit Nails' and not your actual name

  3. This is amazing! You should definitely do a post explaining how you do this, especially the blood splatter! Would be a good idea for a Halloween post x

  7. Ahhh, incredible. I only ever watched the first season of True Blood on DVD as I don't have HBO but I loved it. I definitely need to recreate something like this - awesome work, lady!

  8. Love the mani! My issue with True Blood is that the books are so much better - and so different. It's been kinda painful to see the show veer so far off course from the storyline in the books. Still, I love me some Alexander Skarsgaard!

    Do a separate page for your FB and set it up with networked blogs so you don't have to think too much about it.

  12. I love these!
    I set up a facebook for my blog using my current Facebook account (the one I use with the 'normals') - I was worried my friends would see my page as I didn't want them to know about my blog but you wouldn't be able to tell that I even have a fb page from my personal fb profile. :) xx
