CNT Halloween Nail Challenge Day 1: Trick or Treat Nails

     It's Monday again and that means two things.  It is MSMD Monday and day one of our Halloween challenge in the facebook group, Crumpet's Nail Tarts.  MSMD, for those of you that are not familiar stands for Monkey See, Monkey Do. We recreate mani's from other bloggers that we like and pay some long due respect to the creators of our inspiration.  I didn't have time to do two manicures so I figured that this would be the perfect opportunity to do a post that killed two birds with one stone.  Today's inspiration came from D'Anna at Not Another Nail Blog.
     I tried out one of the new Fantasy Makers from Wet N' Wild in this mani and I have to say that I am not impressed.  I bought this color because it is a black base with pink and blue micro glitters in it.  Well, they are micro for sure.  I could barely see any of the cute colors shinning through in this polish.  :-(  I had such high expectations.  Oh well.  What can ya do.

Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Orange base color: Clementine from Sinful Colors - 2 coats
Black base on ring finger: Black Creme from Wet N' Wild - 1 thick coat
Black base on other nails: Nail in the Coffin from Fantasy Makers by Wet N' Wild - 3 coats
Top coat:  Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat
Lettering and pumpkin face: White - Titanium White acrylic paint from Artist's Loft
                                               Black- Titanium Black acrylic paint from Artist's Loft
