Discovery Channel's annual Shark Week has me feeling very ocean-oriented, and though I'm not very crafty, I have countless creative, Pinterest-crazy pals who I think would be into these shark-inspired DIY projects. Go on ahead and dive into these shark-infested waters--you won't regret it.
First, we have to make sure our nails look fly. Or in this case, bloody as hell. Check out the mani below for easy inspiration. All you'll need are blue and red nail polish for the simple version--use the blue as your watery base and let dry. Then go nuts, splattering those nails with bloody red. Read More
