**Each of these manicures should begin with base coat and end with top coat. Always.
1. Start with an all-over base color; to create a Goosebumps-worthy slime color, I did a thin coat of an opaque lime green and then covered it with two coats of the thinner, neon shade.
2. For the ooze: Drip a sizeable dot of black in the center. Wiping the brush almost clean, drag lightly upwards. Repeat to varying sizes and lengths according to how you think your nail was “slimed.” For raised drips, allow the original to dry and then drop an additional dot or two in the center of each drip.
3. Give the ooze ample time to dry before applying top coat to avoid smears.
