Minecraft Monster Manicure

Happy Halloween!  Now is the time of year to wear scary nails - something many of us nail polish addicts in the blogging world have been doing all month.  I wasn't sure what to do with my nails this Halloween, until I remembered that I've been playing an awful lot of Minecraft lately...and what does Minecraft have?  A lot of scary monsters!  What better thing to wear on your fingernails on Halloween?



 Here's the monsters...spider, zombie, creeper, enderman, and skeleton.


And here's the manicure!

I had a lot of fun with this one, though I don't think I'll do it very often since it took so long.  I painted pieces of scotch tape with nail polish, and cut out the eye and face shapes with nail scissors.


Sorry about the terrible lighting - it's been cloudy and overcast all day, and there's no good natural light to be had.  I will try to take better pictures tomorrow.  I think our weather is a byproduct of Sandy spinning itself out.  Thinking about those on the East Coast.  I hope the lights come on soon and the water is bailed out in safety.


I think my manicure turned out pretty well for a first attempt!  I especially like the spider on my pinky and the creeper.  The colors were hard to match for the zombie though, and his eye got a bit crooked.


Here's the crew.  They are so cute.  The polishes I used for this manicure were:

Camelot - a England
Perceval- a England
Avalon - a England
Fatigued - Sonia Kashuk
Just In Lime - Sally Hansen Insta-Dri
Concrete Evidence - Ulta Nail Lacquer
And some dark grey polish I mixed together out of a few colors for the skeleton's face.

By the way, I beat the Ender Dragon last night on the vanilla Minecraft server I frequent.  First time I have been able to do that before!  MINECRAFT BADASS REPRESENT.

 
Thanks for looking!  Happy Halloween, everyone!

  1. Oh my, I just love the geekiness. I saw you joined my blog, you're the girl from Montreal aren't you? From reddit? I saw in an old post that you just moved here this year. We should totally hang out! I do my friend's nails every week (we're fighting her nail biting habit), nail polish nights are routine for me :D
