When you're in two Halloween challenges, it's unavoidable that certain topics will appear twice. Today is the first instance of this for me--this is my second 'zombie' prompt. For my first prompt, I did little hungry zombies trying to nom some brainz. In this prompt, for my 'This Is Halloween' challenge, I wanted to do something a bit different.
I thought to myself...what if a polish lover, with pretty glitter polishes, was turned into a zombie? What would those nails look like? Would the glitter turn? What kind of gunk would mess it all up? Here is my take on it:
|I'm a zombie girl...|
|In a zombie world...|
Mmm...look at all that awesome gore!
|For once the 'claw' pose is appropriate...hee hee hee!|
Run!! It's zombie-glitter-nails girl! She will claw out your brains for awesome polishez!!!
Okay, enough weirdness. Here's how I did it. First I applied one coat of Whimsical Ideas by Pam Wicked (Indie alert!). Then I applied one coat of China Glaze Zombie Zest to zombie it up a bit. Then I used a second coat of Wicket, to get that layered glitter look (sort of a reverse glitter sammich?). Then I used The Nail Junkie Black Cat ('Nother Indie Alert!) and sponged it on the tips and up the cuticles, to make it look like I'd been digging in the dirt. Finally, I used Pure Ice Siren to put blood on the nails, using a fan brush to sweep it across. I didn't clean up the cuticles/fingers cause I wanted it to look gory...but as I look at it, it just looks sloppy. I need more gore! :P
