This is Halloween Challenge 1-HORROR MOVIES



Well today is the first day of my first challenge!!!  Actually I'm paticipating in 2 challenges for the month of October.  So, today I have 2 manis to show you! 
The first one I want to show is for the Halloween themed one.  The theme for today is HORROR MOVIES!!  So in honor of the first horror movie I ever saw I did my mani based on A Nightmare on Elm Street!  I was only like 8 when I saw this movie and it scared the crap out of me!  But let me tell you, I was hooked on horror after that!
The polishes I used for this mani are
 
China Glaze Westside Warrior 
OPI Got the Blues for Red
WNW Black Creme
and for Freddy's claw I used acrylic paint
 
Here are the polishes I used
 
 
 
And here it is
 


 
 
Here's a shot of his shirt
 
 
 
The stripes are the same as Freddy's shirt and the middle finger has his claw of knives.  I only explain this because I went to Walgreens to find an olive green color for the stripes and a girl working there asked if I needed any help.  I told her what I was looking for and she said she couldn't help because she had never seen the movies.  A damn shame I say!
I'm quite pleased with the end results!!  All the polishes I used are great polishes and caused me no problems.  I used 2 coats of Westside Warrior and then layed down the striping tape and did 1 coat of Got the Blues for Red.  Then I lightly sponged a little Black Creme in spots!
This is actually my second attempt at the mani.  The first one I did the stripes free hand but I like the look of the one I used the striping tape on better.  Here's a shot of my first (failed) attempt.
 
 
Hope you enjoyed my first eva challenge mani!  I sure had fun doing it!!
