Today's theme (well, yesterday's) in the CNT Halloween challenge is Monsters! I also have this theme coming up later in the Lacquer Dreams Halloween challenge as well, so I'm combining it for a two-fer. :)
When trying to figure out what to do for this challenge, I just so happened to have been swatching the new China Glaze Halloween collection. When I looked down at my hands, I had China Glaze Boo-gie Down (a black, white and orange-gold glitter topper) over Trendsetter (a pea-soup green shimmer):

Because the orange glitter is so muted in Boo-gie Down, I decided to put it over a more muted (okay, scrumptiously putrid looking!) green. I love the combo, and when I looked down, I thought--they sort of look like ghoul fingers! They just need some sort of talons!
::ding ding ding bell goes off in head::
So, I pulled out my acrylics, blacked out half of the nail, and drew some talons. Here's how they came out:
So what do you think, are they monstruous?? I kept catching glimpses of them out of the corner of my eye, and I'd do a double take, lol. This would be great to do for a ghoul type costume, or even just for handing out candy to the kids--especially if you get some of those gloves that just have the fingertips missing. You could also alter it a bit to make them nails instead of talons (have them come down into the green finger a bit more) and they could be awesome witch nails. :)
Thanks for checking it out, and don't forget to check out the other monster manis below--if you dare!
Shrieks and howls,
