Halloween Post #1 Trying Hallo' Nails

Halloween, Easter, Christmas. You name it, I'm there. I've always been someone that loves anything that gives you an excuse to get dressed up or buy presents or just have fun. This is the first Halloween since I really became interested in nail art and with that in mind I decided to try out  a couple designs before taking off my polish the other day. 

Slime Nails
Excuse the fact that one of my nails is glittery and the polish is peeling!
These aren't exactly rocket science, but I think they look pretty good (or would do with a little improvement).I think most people have nails like this with a  neon green base colour but I reckon red on black with a little bit of white mixed into the red would also look good, kind of zombie like. 

Next up I tried doing a Frankenstein face, now this I found a lot trickier and it didn't come out right, I think I'd need to practice these a lot more, especially if I wanted to paint my right hand nails!
Aside from his bald patch (he must be a man of a certain age!)  his hair should be much sharper looking and his mouth a little thinner. I think at the moment he looks a bit too friendly. I also need to get my hands on some white polish so I can dot in his eyes. 

Here's a pic of what I was aiming for:
