Three Black Nails is a scary story for kids about a girl who paints her doll’s fingernails black. It is a variation on the tale “Purple Fingernails”.
There was a little girl who had a doll and she painted three of her fingernails black.
Then, one night, she heard a voice sat, “Three black nails, in your parent’s room.”
She ran into her parent’s room and found her mother and father dead. They had three long scratch marks on their backs.
Then the girl went back to bed and she heard a voice say, “Three black nails, in your brother’s room.”
She ran into her brother’s room and found him dead. He had three long scratch marks on his back.
Then she went back to sleep and she heard a voice say, “Three black nails, coming to get you.”
The next day, the girl was found dead. She had three long scratch marks on her back.
The doll was sitting beside her and its fingernails were stained with blood.
