CNT Halloween Challenge Day 3: Zombies

     Today in Crumpet's Nail Tarts Halloween Challenge we are supposed to do Zombies.  Now, let me start off by saying, I am not a fan of zombies.  Don't like them, don't watch them, don't know what they look like, don't want anything to do with them.  Off to Google I went... (Does this sound familiar?  I love Google).  I searched "cute zombies" and found this image.  It was the cutest one I could find and I figured that I could re-create it.  I think I did a pretty good job.  
     After I painted Ibiza on my ring finger I painted the entire zombie in white acrylic paint so that when I added the color it would pop.  

Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Base color:
  accent nail: Ibiza from Zoya - 1 coat
  other nails: Night Prowl from Wet N' Wild - 2 coats - How ironic, right!  Perfect name.
Zombie attire:
  face and hand: San Tan-Tonio from O.P.I.
  brain: The One That Got Away from O.P.I. mixed with white acrylic paint
  shirt: I Need A Refresh-Mint from Wet N' Wild
  pants: Why Not from Sinful Colors
  heart: The One That Got Away from O.P.I.
  outline: Lamp Black from Artist's Loft acrylic paint
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat      

AND a close up of my cute little zombie...

I hope you guys like my take on the zombie mani.  If you are interested in more gorey zombies, check out the other manis from this challenge.
