These blood-drip stiletto-style acrylic nails are fun for vampires, werewolves, and all your other fabulous fiends! The base colour is glossy white, and the accent at the tips is a brilliant red with just a bit of shimmer. In order to give a more realistic drip/clot effect, the 'blood' is applied so as to be very slightly raised and uneven - however, the texture isn't unpleasant, and there are no other 3D elements.
Each set uses a high-quality bonding basecoat, glossy sealer/topcoat, and name-brand polish to create a unique and lasting look. As each nail is individually hand-created, there may be minor variations in placement of the art elements.
Please note that the example photos were taken outdoors, and different monitors may display slight variations in colour.
With care taken during wear and removal, these nails may be reusable. They are intended as a special occasion accessory, to be worn for short periods of a few hours up to a day or so, and should be attached with press-on nail tape (optional addon), which can be removed by soaking your fingers in warm, soapy water and gently pushing up the nails once the adhesive begins to loosen. Be gentle on your hands while wearing them, and avoid immersing them in water before you're ready for them to come off. (While attaching them with nail glue may secure them for longer stretches of time, it will also require them to be removed with acetone, which will dissolve both the nails and the glue and definitely render them un-reusable!)
This listing is for a set of made-to-order nails, in the style and colours shown above, in your choice of sizes. You may choose from the standard sizes listed below:
SMALL: Two (2) each of 15mm, 13mm, 12mm, 11mm, 10mm, 9mm
MEDIUM: Two (2) each of 16mm, 14mm, 13mm, 12mm, 11mm, 10mm
LARGE: Two (2) each of 18mm, 16mm, 15mm, 14mm, 13mm, 12mm
- or you may opt for a completely customized size, with each nail fitted to an individual measurement (from 9mm to 19mm). If selecting the 'Custom' size option, please include the needed measurements as a note with your order.
To determine size, measure from one side of your nailbed to the other with a flexible tape. Make sure that the tape shapes to the curve of your nail - holding it flat will give an inaccurate measurement! Be sure to measure the nails on both hands, as they may not be identical. If your nails fall between sizes, you should either order the larger size, as the sides can be filed down to fit (whereas smaller nails can't be made larger, and may crack if forced into place), or request a custom-fitted set.
This design is also available in black - see the rest of our listings!
GENERAL SHIPPING/HANDLING: Please be aware that Gingerdead House shipping prices are estimated by Etsy using both the item's weight and the size of the finished package. Most times, the difference between the estimate and the final cost should be negligible - however, in cases where ordering multiple items or extremely lightweight items causes an excessive overage, a refund can be issued.
READY-MADE ITEMS: Ready-made items will be shipped within five business days of receiving payment.
CUSTOM ITEMS: Depending on type and complexity, custom items may require 1-2 weeks of production time after payment is received, and will ship within five business days once completed.
SHIPPING WITHIN THE UNITED STATES: Most items ship USPS Mail, in whatever packaging will provide the most economy without sacrificing security. Tracking is automatically included as part of your S&H fees.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING : I strongly suggest adding some sort of tracking, insurance, or proof of delivery option to international shipping. To add tracking or insurance, please contact me for an updated invoice before making your payment. I am not responsible for untracked packages, delays that may be caused by customs inspections, or fees issued by your country.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING SPECIAL NOTE: I cannot ship nail polishes outside the continental United States. I am VERY sorry about this - international shipping regulations are much more complex and restrictive, with many countries (including the US) not permitting nail polish to be mailed across borders at all, and alternative couriers have such stringent requirements that I'm unable to use them (they're also extremely expensive, and unlikely to be cost-effective to you).
Once items have been dropped off for shipping, they become the post office's responsibility. Tracking and insurance are offered for protection of both the buyer and the seller.
Gingerdead House prefers Paypal when possible.
Payment must be received within three days of purchase, or the item may be relisted.
Orders for ready-made items cannot be cancelled once placed.
Orders for custom items can only be cancelled if work has not yet started.
Returns & exchanges
Unless specially noted in an item's description, all sales are final. For hygenic reasons, I cannot accept returns on acrylic nails, nail lacquers, or any other cosmetic product. Please read product descriptions and take measurements carefully before placing an order.
Regarding 3D Art Nails - While care is taken to attach elements as securely as possible, the shop cannot be responsible for chips or detachments that occur once received, as there is no way of knowing whether or not the manner in which the nails were handled/worn by the buyer contributed to the damage.
If an item is damaged during shipment, please contact the shop with pictures of the damage within three (3) days of receiving the package to discuss options.
ACRYILC NAILS / NAIL ART: Acrylic nail sets come in the following standard sizes:
S: 2 x 15mm, 13mm, 12mm, 11mm, 10mm, 9mm
M: 2 x 16mm, 14mm, 13mm, 12mm, 11mm, 10mm
L: 2 x 18mm, 16mm, 15mm, 14mm, 13mm, 12mm
Custom sets, fitted to the buyer's exact specifications, are also available. Nails in custom sets may be any combination of sizes from 9mm to 19mm (whole sizes only). If you have hands that don't fall neatly into the standard set sizes, or more than one nail on the same hand that are the same size, a custom set is most likely best for you. There are no additional charges for custom-sized nails.
NAIL POLISHES: All custom polishes are handmade with basic ingredients (powdered pigments, uncoloured suspension bases, etc). They are NOT Frankenpolishes mixed from someone else's finished products. I record my recipes and make every attempt to reproduce them as precisely as possible, but due to the nature of handmade products, I cannot guarantee there may not be minor variations from time to time.
