I really want to go Blood, but for mostly just preference reasons I kind of want to dual wield. Would going deep enough into frost to get nerves of cold steel and still going blood but forsaking 2 hand specialization be a stupid idea? Or would it work ok?

If you use the linked 51/13/7 build as a basis, there's no reason foregoing two-hand specialization for nerves of cold steel would be a bad idea.

I'm not sure how blood will work with dual wielding. It's really made for a big 2hander with heart strike and obliterate being the main yellow damage. A big, slow 2hander is much better for those attacks and blood lacks the swing based procs that will help DW catch up. If you want to do competitive DPS with DW, you'll need 18 points in Unholy for Necrosis and Blood Caked Blade. It is impossible to get 5/5 Blood Gorged, 3/3 Nerves of Steel and 3/3 Blood Caked Blade in the same build. You'll have to make a sacrifice and will end up with lower DPS in the end. It is also very helpful to have 5/5 Icy Talons for 20% haste.
