Halloween Nail Art!!

I've been wanting to paint my nails something festive for Halloween and I have decided on those spooky/scared eyes.  I'm quite happy with the outcome. :)

Pretty simple to do.  Especially since I only did my thumbs.
I might go back and add something to the rest. 

The colors/brands I used were: Midnight Satin (Milani, a few coats) for the main part of the nail,
Steel-her Heart (Revlon) for the pupils.. only a dot is needed,
 white nail art pen for the oval shapes
 and of course a base and top coat. 

For the white part, I made sure to keep the bottom as flat as possible.
So, it is not a true oval.
One tip to getting your nail art looking the way you'd like it to try to draw it out first on a paper with a pen.  Get a feel for the shapes you want.  Then, when you are ready, use a steady hand and slowly draw in the shapes on your nail.
Nail art pens work amazingly.  Or maybe a tooth pick? Hmm.

Edit 10/26/11: I have decided to add words to the rest of my nails! I know, I'm excited, too. :)

Hope you like!
