Day Eight TDoHNC: Totally Vamped Out

Day eight, we are halfway through the challenge already! This week features a lot of the Halloween creatures of the night. Today's theme features the most fearsome, intriguing- and thanks to TV and film lately- and sexy of them all. Vampires. 

I prefer smoldering Damon Salvatore to sparkly Edward Cullen any day of the week, but I am digressing. My vampires are far from sexy. I they are relatives of another TV vampire- Sesame Street's The Count. I also wanted to try a ruffian mani and thought it would work with the faces.

I started with a base of Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby. I actually had to go out and buy a basic red. I then did the smaller nail shape in Finger Paints Paper Mache. With Julep Ellie I covered over the white. This color gave me the perfect undead flesh tone- pinky with a bluish undertone.

The details were added with Stripe Rite in white and Finger Paints Striper in Ch-Art-coal Black.

Overall, these weren't my fave, but they got the theme across. To make myself feel better, I caught a few episodes of Vampire Diaries. (Maybe I'm biased because the main character is named Elena.)

Check out the other lovely ladies of the the challenge...
