You'll Need:
A toothpick
Some deep, dark red polish

Now to start,

Start with a nude nail, or a base coat if you prefer that. Dip the toothpick into the deep, dark red polish and place a small dot about halfway down your nail. Using the toothpick, drag the polish up to the tip of your nail.
Repeat one, two, or three many as necessary to achieve the desired gory look you're going for.

Connect the tops of the smudged drop with a stroke of polish at the tip of your nail, think French manicure style.

Seal the splatters and drops of 'blood' with a top coat.

There you have it, a creepy, gory, runway to realway manicure for Halloween!
