SassyNails Nail-Aween Nail Art Challenge: Day 5 - Ghosts and Goblins

     Hey everyone.  It has been a few days since I have posted anything, but for good reason.  On Friday my friends and I took their kids out to a pumpkin patch close by and they do this corn maze every year.  This is one of the things I really look forward to every fall.  Escpecially since this year they did a Pac Man maze!  I love Pac Man!  Whenever I go to our local bowling alley I play Pac Man and Centipede for ever.  But really, who can resist those awesome, classic arcade games?!   
     The inspiration for these ghosts came from another YouTube video from IHaveACupcake.  Here is a link to the video.  I just thought these were so cute and I knew there was no way I would be able to do a goblin so I went with these.
     Unfortunately, I went a little to thick on my base color and never let it fully dry before applying the glow in the dark layers an it chipped off rather quick at work the next day.  :-(  Oh well. 

Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Base color: Ibiza from Zoya - 1 thick coat followed by Go With The Glow from Wet N' Wild Fantasy Makers - 3 coats
Ghosts: Titanium White acrylic paint from Artist's Loft and Lamp Black (eyes)
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

I tried so hard to get a picute of these glowing in the dark but my camera is part of my phone and the light from the screen would cancel out the glow in the dark and only take black pictures.  :-(  Just know that it was really cute.

This challenge is being put on by SassyNails and it is a self paced challenge.  We have until the end of October to create our ten manicures.
