Claw Polish is one of those brands that surfaces around Halloween and sells cute little themed polishes to rope in suckers like me. I found them at my local CVS (which is shocking since my closest CVS sucks!) and decided to pick up Phantom, the only one in the display that really stood out as being different from anything else I owned. At first, it just looks like a normal light-ish gray creme, but when you look closer, you can see all the awesome purple, blue and silver shimmer particles that make Phantom really stand out.
This was two very patient coats. The biggest downfall of Claw Polish is that awful brush handle AKA the most awkward thing to hold and polish with EVER. But if you can get past that, the end result is totally worth it. Behold, super close macro shot!
And then, since this is a Halloween-themed polish, I did some Halloween-themed stamping inspired by Kristin at The Manicured Monkey! I used Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme to stamp the little skull and bones and added some green rhinestone eyes. Unfortunately, his one eye-hole is bigger than the other, so he looks a little lazy-eyed from certain angles. Oh well, makes him creepier, right?
