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!!
