CNT Halloween Nail Challenge: Witches

     Today in the Facebook group, Crumpet's Nail Tarts, our challenge is witches.  As with all these challenge post's I never have any idea what the heck I am going to do.  All I knew is that I wanted to use Scandalous from Revlon as the base.  Scandalous is a black base with purple hex and micro glitter.  This formula dried very fast on me and is opaque in two coats.  I am a sucker for a dark color and this seemed perfect for a Halloween mani.  I was going to use a dark purple creme for my accent nail but then figured my witch design wouldn't show well against a dark base.  Then I saw Essie's Pretty Edgy and knew that this was the perfect accent color.  A beautiful green that would be perfect for a witches face.  And the rest is history from there!

Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Base color: Scandalous from Revlon -2 coats
Accent color: Pretty Edgy from Essie - 2 coats
Witch colors: Lamp Black and Lemon Yellow from Artist's Loft acrylic paint
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

I hope you enjoy my witch!  If you want to check out some crazy, awesome witch manis check out these ladies blogs who are also doing this challenge.
